This online self-paced course provides 16 modules preparing UAS operators to collect, tune, and interpret thermograms. The first modules explain the science of infrared radiation and how its measurement can be used to determine thermal patterns. Next, the course teaches you how to tune the images with post-production software to more accurately determine true temperatures. Finally, the course teaches you how to interpret the data and filter out embarrassing false positives.
The course includes 11 individual labs to reinforce the concepts taught. The use of your own thermal drone is encouraged but not required. Sample data is provided so everyone can participate in the lab exercises. Dr. Burgett reviews each of your lab exercise submissions and provides customized feedback.
An online proctored exam resulting in a Level 1 UAS Thermography Certificate is included with the course fee. Approximately 20 hours of content completed over a 10 week period.
Courses start the first Monday of every month: June 5th, July 3rd, August 7th, September 4th, October 2nd, November 6th, December 4th.
