About

The era of unmanned aircraft in the national airspace is upon us. With the Federal Aviation Administration slated to integrate unmanned aircraft into the country’s airspace as early as 2015, the demand for safe, reliable, and resilient unmanned aircraft is growing exponentially. Estimates project that sales of civilian unmanned aircraft will reach over $20 billion within the next 5 years. As such, the demand for unmanned aircraft researchers, developers, pilots, and operators will become exponential within the next few years. These professionals will be tasked with developing and implementing safe, reliable unmanned aircraft with advanced functionality that are ready to be fielded by operators all across the country including public service organizations such as police and fire departments, the media, academic institutions, agricultural companies as well as myriad commercial entities. The keys to highly functioning, safe and reliable unmanned aircraft are robust, well architected software and highly reliable computer systems.

Sofia University is proud to lead the industry with this groundbreaking forward looking concentration. The program covers the critical areas of unmanned systems computer science and technology that are central to safe and reliable unmanned aircraft systems operations. It covers unmanned aircraft computer and software technologies, vital algorithms that support unmanned aircraft operations and system autonomy, as well as critical software architectures that support anti-collision and auto-land technologies that are central to safe unmanned aircraft operations.
