11 Jul GeoTEd-UAS Internship Completion
Six community college students and three community college faculty recently completed an intensive internship program conducting UAS research and flight testing. Led by VSGC and funded by the NSF, the GeoTEd-UAS Internship program was in partnership with Virginia Tech's site in the Center for Unmanned Aircraft Systems (C-UAS), a multi-university NSF Industry/University Cooperative Research Center. In addition to tuition support for two classes, preparation for the FAA Remote Pilot Certificate, travel funding, and operating supplies, students and faculty earned stipends for completing the internship. VSGC and GeoTEd-UAS team members served as project leaders and subject-matter experts.
