The UAS Training Lab boasts eight simulators, facilitating a seamless link between ground control station software and simulated uncrewed aircraft.

This setup allows students to practice lifelike flight scenarios and emergency procedures, complete with a camera payload replicating real-world situations. The innovative Remote Split Operations feature enables students to remotely operate actual aircraft across diverse locations in the United States, conducting tasks such as search and rescue missions and cell tower inspections. The UAS Training Lab offers students a comprehensive learning journey with robust flight planning tools and management resources. Furthermore, the lab equips students with practical skills and knowledge, solidifying the laboratory's role as a comprehensive uncrewed aircraft systems education hub.
