Insitu Sells First Commercial UAS Software Package, Curriculum To UN Reno

Initiates A New UAS Flight Coordinator Course At The School

Insitu has made the first sale of its new commercial ground control software and UAS training package to the University of Nevada, Reno College of Engineering, initiating the establishment of a new UAS Flight Coordinator Course at the institution.

Inexa Control is Insitu's new commercial variant of a ground control software tool suite and will be the backbone of this new three-credit, semester-long course offering at the university. The course will be available this fall and will complement the Unmanned Autonomous Systems Minor the university currently offers within its College of Engineering.

The UAS Flight Coordinator Course will focus on the basics of flight and flight operations from an unmanned perspective. In addition to aerodynamics of air vehicles and flight physics, the course will provide students with an understanding of the unique aspects of unmanned flight operations, such as specific FAA regulations and the unique mission sets that are available using unmanned platforms. Students will use Inexa Control as the basis for UAS simulation and lab practicals.

The collaboration between Insitu as a professional unmanned aviation company and University of Nevada, Reno is furthered by the university's status as an FAA test site agent for the northern region of Nevada.

"Inexa Control is an important new offering for Insitu as we continue to expand into the commercial market. Collaborations like the one we are developing with the university will become increasingly vital to this effort," said Jon Damush, vice president and general manager of Insitu Mission Systems. "Not only are we helping this institution build their curriculum pertaining to UAS, but we are also laying the groundwork for more unmanned aviation professionals in the future."

"UAS is an important industry for northern Nevada, and we are pleased to collaborate with Insitu to provide this opportunity for our students," said Manos Maragakis, dean of the College of Engineering. "This unique course will give our students marketable skills and experience, enabling them to compete for the best jobs in the field of unmanned aerial systems."
