Strategic Plan – Initiative Work Plan FY2015 1 Initiative Name: Center for Unmanned Systems and Human Capital Development Date: May 31, 2014 Goal # 4 Goal Chair(s) Dr. Richard B. Williams Initiative # 5 Initiative Chair(s) Dr. Michael Chambers Thesis Statement: The Center promotes unmanned systems technologies and the development of the required human capital in support of their use. The center creates an environment of education, training and research to support many of societies’ continuing needs in areas such as homeland security, civil authorities, first responders, agriculture, and other civilian applications. __________________________________________________________________________________________ 1. Introduction/Background – What? The Center for Unmanned Systems and Human Capital Development supports human capital development for the 21st century in the use of unmanned systems in the areas of homeland security, civil authorities, and commercial enterprises. The Center’s focus is on providing the skills necessary to operate, maintain, and support the vehicles, communications networks, computer systems, and other infrastructure elements of unmanned systems. Our methods emphasize the education and training of the human operators who use unmanned systems technologies to address some of societies’ challenges. 2. Proposal/Purpose/Justification – Why? As we enter the third year of this initiative, the Center is fully established to support the growing need for human capital and technology research in the dynamic field of unmanned systems and robotics. Our overall goals continue to include the development of students fully involved in education, training, and research in the use of unmanned systems in agriculture and first responder technologies. The objectives for ISU students remain as follows: Gain the ability to understand and conduct mission planning Determine appropriate mission requirements Define effective sensor solutions for specific business problems Conduct effective vehicle and sensor operations Students obtain realworld experience through working with industry partners in exercises and actual situations. This past year, several students received internships and job offers in this new field. The events include working with emergency management first responders, US military experts,
