LASR @ Program Leadership Training Activities

Land.Air.Sea Robotics

​Smart Leaders Do Smart Things.  Smart Teachers Produce Smart Students.  

For the LASR Program Leader:

The emerging multi-billion dollar Land.Air.Sea Robotics (LASR) industry will see the formation of 1000+ start ups a week for the next 10 years worldwide.  Will yours survive?  The primary all start-ups fail IS NOT lack of funding, but the lack of "Conceptual Integrity" between founders and the workforce.  Simply put, leadership failure.  Root cause analysis of these leadership failures most often points to failure to "cross-polinate" between the department leadership responsible for implementation.  In LASR, those departments are generally grouped by function:  Maintenance; Operations; Safety; and Training (MOST).  UASA has a focused leadership training activity program to ensure you hire and develop the best team for your start up.

UASA Uses Team Performance Science in Everything We Do

Every Gold Seal MOST coach has at least 10 LASR Program start-up leadership team experiences under their belt.  How many LASR programs have you launched?  Our 4-day "bootcamp" is an excellent starting point for your start up to gain valuable hands on experience in the Maintenance, Operations, Safety, and Training (MOST) of your LASR business unit development.  Courses are taught at UASA Washington DC-Area Training Centers located in Haymarket, VA or Annapolis, MD.  If you have a team of 8, we can offer the 4-day MOST bootcamp at your location.  Coaches are selected based specifically on your requirements.  Curriculum labs are based on the core focus of your mission to ensure appropriate scope and on-point facilitated team development.

For the Trainer/Teacher:

​Who trains you?  The UAS Academy (UASA) is a coalition of educators, unmanned systems professionals, and researchers around the world that are focused on the use of Land.Air.Sea Robotics (LASR) as learning tools for secondary and collegiate students.  UASA uses a "Constructivist Immersive Informal Team" CIIT approach to curriculum design, ensuring the teachers are free to deliver education in their own style, but assured that the learners are on track with the learning objectives and motivated to develop team and communication skills and abilities along the way.  Are your students motivated?

UASA is teamed with HPAtoolbox, the makers of eBoard, the most advanced lab notebook designed as a social and learning tool.  eBoard is an after action review tool... the coolest video, data capture system around.  All UASA curriculum is designed to work seamlessly in eBoard.

The Academy develops curriculum that meets or exceeds the standards applicable for leading educational institutions - saving years of work for educators that want to use LASR as a means of engaging students.

Our primary focus is on providing OER licensed curriculum to ensure trainers are able to meet industry standards, provide time-saving teacher in-service training, and a "one stop pro shop" for validated, curriculum.  UAS Academy's Internal Research and Development (IR&D) program ensures objectivity.  The Academy is not influenced by "proprietary" technology or outdated standards.  Since 2013, UASA has validated more than 20 courses related to LASR, and provided program strategy support to more than 600 schools that have downloaded our STEM Mentoring Program documentation.

UAS Academy also provides "on campus LASR events" - and each summer leads LASR Expeditions around the world helping teachers and students increase their capacity to use LASR as a tool in the community.

Teamed with the leading LASR manufacturers, UASA helps ensure your students will graduate with industry-leading hands on experience.

UASA LASR modules help trainers and teachers deliver focused, burst instruction in 40-minute chunks supported by structured and informal labs designed for teams of students to immerse themselves into as they explore the art of the possible while reinforcing STEM knowledge, skills, and abilities.
