Drones & You: Getting to Know Unmanned Aircraft Vehicles (UAVs)

November 18, 2020 | 8:30am-12:30pm (Login begins at 8:15am)

Description

Since 2006, when the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) first recognized the potential that commercialized (i.e. non-military) unmanned aircraft vehicle (UAV) applications could have on both professional development and scientific research, the industry has grown exponentially. With that, the technology and capabilities have advanced at an almost equivalent pace. As the sophistication of this technology evolves, so does its application to a broad spectrum of professionals engaged in services related to the protection of the environment and natural resources.

This course is designed to introduce those professionals interested in the application of this ever expanding technology to their chosen field. The course will inform the participants about the equipment, the personnel, the training, the various available sensors and their capabilities, and the applicability to circumstantial scenarios. Brief tutorials will be offered on how to extract and process sensor data with the use of familiar ArcGIS® and DroneDeploy® computer software. In addition, virtual representations of UAV operations and outputs will also be presented.

Who Should Attend?

A small sampling of professions include:

  • Contaminated Site Investigation and Remediation
  • Brownfield Redevelopment
  • Land Use Management and Planning
  • Natural Resource Protection and Management
  • Wetland Protection
  • Site Civil Engineers
  • Environmental Attorneys
  • And Much More!

Topics to be Discussed

  • History of UAVs: Advancements in Technology and Applications
  • The Air Vehicle: Structural Components of Quad-Copters and Fixed Wings
  • Applications of UAVs, and Payload Abilities: Sensors and Data Gathering in the Field of Concentration (Written specifically for variety of target groups)
  • FAA Rules and Regulations in the field: Quick overview of FAA Part-107 laws and guidelines
  • Mission Control: Missing Planning and Flight Reconnaissance: A) Create a Flight Plan using device controller interfaces (i.e. DJI Pilot® and/or DroneDeploy®) for specific data gathering missions or reconnaissance missions, using particular sensor payloads B) Verifying flight authorization with AirMap®
  • Flight Demonstration
  • Data Processing Programs: ArcGIS’s Drone2Map® and DroneDeploy®

Course Instructor

Jesse Kolodin

Mr. Kolodin is a FAA Part-107 commercially licensed UAV operator, an adjunct professor at both Montclair State University (NJ) and Kean University (NJ), and a doctoral candidate at Montclair State University, studying the economic feedbacks that exist along coupled natural-human coastlines. He is an expert in the use of UAV technology in coastal environments, producing and analyzing the high resolution geo-spatial relationships, along with the vegetation indexes which support local morphological changes. In addition to his use of UAV technology, Mr. Kolodin has taught UAV courses (i.e. Introductory, Licensing, and Training) for undergraduate and graduate students at Montclair State University. He has also assisted in the mentoring of a number of master students in their thesis pursuit at the university. Mr. Kolodin holds a B.S. in Applied Economics from Ithaca College (NY), a M.S. in GeoSciences from Montclair State University (NJ), and is currently a PhD Candidate in the Environmental Science and Management program at Montclair State University (NJ).
