UAV/Drone Training Program Confirmed
Spaceport Indiana is confirming that it will offer Indiana's first UAV training program. This unique opportunity will expose students to the entire domain of UAV operations. "Simply flying a vehicle is a small part of the total understanding of operations in this environment." says SPI President Brian Tanner. The focus of the program will be on the system and profile development for flying routine and special operations. Understanding ground stations, sensors, operational environment and regulations will be part of the training. SPI staff have experience with many UAV systems and operations. Students will interface with some of the most experienced professionals in the industry and be prepared to take the role as pilots, planners and operational developers for a variety of new customers. Those interested in the program can email SPI at UAVTraining@spaceportindiana.com. The program will open to regsitration in Fall 2013.
Artemis will Premier at INSpace Camp
Project Artemis, a disaster response system, will make its premier at the June INSpace Camp 2013. The new platform is designed to help First Responders, Homeland Secrity personnel and other agencies establish communications and internet connectivity when those services have been lost. Many communities have Emergency Operations Centers (EOC) but they are dependent upon the electrical grid or powered by generators. In several instances, those EOCs have failed because of power outages or lack of diesel fuel supply. In the case of Tropical Storm Sandy or in Henryville, Indiana, citizens could not reach loved ones and information between agencies was compromised by bad data. Artemis is a completely independent system that can operate for weeks without any outside support. Students will demonstrate Artemis to show its ease of deployment and operation. There are still some seats open for June Camp, but not many. It's a unique opportunity for interested students who like the challenge of implementing new technology.

What jobs would today's middle school students fill in a future workforce? There are plenty. As you might guess, there are a host of new career choices that look nothing like the careers that Generation X had to choose from. The "Digital Generation" as they're known today will have different jobs and will need new curriculum to support them. As we debate school funding and class offerings, consider the list of new jobs that will fill the global economy. Click HERE to view and download the 20 newest science based careers we've identified.
