The development of aviation industry from past to present in the world and our country, types of aerial vehicles andflight principles of basic aerial vehicles are taught in Aerospace Technologies training. Then, basic model aircraft applications for UAV systems, for which our country is becoming reowned in the world, will be indicated.
Theoretical information about aircraft propulsion systems and avionics systems will be provided, and sample applications such as engine thrust measurements and the Fly by Wire system will be carried out in the workshop environment by using Deneyap Kart. Students will model an aircraft in an open source simulation environment and make a sample application of a UAV that is controlled by ROS commands, the robotic operating system. In the space dimension of the course, rocket systems that enable us to reach space will be introduced and a model rocket design that can reach an altitude of 100 m will be made. Studies on satellite systems in our country and in the world will be explained, staying in orbit, energy consumption of a satellite and communication technologies, which are its main elements, will be mentioned. For this purpose, a small representation of the communication between a satellite and earth station will be carried out in the workshop environment by using Deneyap Kart.
Knowledge about the subject and manual skills will be acquired to design, simulate a basic aircraft with its main components, and build a small UAV or rocket system as a result of the course,. The course lasts 12 weeks. Students develop a research-based project at the end of the course. Sample project subjects are indicated below.
Aerospace Technologies education is taught face-to-face.
