Training Courses

UAV Navigation (UAVN) knows that our clients want to be self-sufficient. In order to ensure it, UAV Navigation offers a variety of courses for its Flight Control System (FCS).

Courses follow a conventional format, consisting of theory and practical training, confirmed by practical exercises and/or a final exam. They are developed using a Systems Approach to Training (SAT) methodology. Each course is broken down into Training Objectives (TO), which in turn are made up of Teaching Points (TP). A TP may consist of one or more lessons.

Courses may take place at customer's facilities or UAVN's facilities in San Sebastian de los Reyes, Madrid.

Integration Course

Integration Course

The goal is to provide students with the skills necessary to carry out:

  • Mechanical installation of a UAV Navigation (UAVN) autopilot.
  • Set up of Ground Control Station.
  • Configuration of the autopilot and peripherals.

Additionally, a UAV Navigation expert technician may come to your site to assist in the integration of the flight control system into your platform.

Training Objectives

1

Understand UAV Navigation products and services

Describe the basic Flight Control System architecture

2

Set up and configure the GCS Hardware

3

Connect and configure the autopilot: GCS Software Configuration Tool

4

Understand autopilot Hardware, mechanical installation and configuration

5

Peripherals configuration

Operation Course

Operation Course

The goal is to provide the students with the skills necessary to form part of a UAV Operator Team as an Internal Pilot and to conduct UAV operations safely and competently using the UAVN Flight Control System (FCS).

Training Objectives

1

Plan an unmanned system mission

2

Autopilot Software & Flight Modes

3

Execute an unmanned system mission

4

Post-mission analysis

 

Advanced Gains Adjustment Course

Advanced Gains Adjustment Course

This course enables the client to adjust a UAV Navigation autopilot's flight control loops to meet specific requirements of a particular UAV platform. The course covers both theoretical and practical aspects of the process of adjusting gains. It includes detailed instruction about control gains and the way in which each of them is related to their effects, control, limits, signs and potential risks to flight safety. Practical exercises with the HIL simulator will be carried out to put into practice what was previously presented.

Training Objectives

1

Introduction to Reference Systems

2

Introduction to Flight Dynamics

3

Introduction to Control Theory: open-loop, closed-loop, proportional–integral–derivative (PID) mechanisms, etc.

4

Autopilot: Control Actuator Systems (CAS), Stability Augmentation Systems (SAS), Total Energy Control System (TECS), trim, etc.

5

Gains Adjustment Procedure and tools
