GEOG 892
Geospatial Applications of Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS)

Summary and final tasks



Congratulations! You've finished most of the Lesson 2 material. What I hope you learned from this lesson is all you need to know about the different elements that form a UAS. The payload section is very valuable to individuals with background in geospatial mapping, as it goes through the different sensors utilized by the industry today. Understanding the functionality of each of the UAS elements will help you in the common lessons, where we are going to talk about Concepts of Operation (CONOP), risk assessment, and Certificate of Authorization (COA). Therefore, please make sure that you understand the different topics of this lesson and do not hesitate to ask questions.
