UAV Training

With growing demand for UAV Technicians, Dronix Technologies Pvt Ltd, has designed the most demanding UAV Technician Training course. This course takes the participants behind the scenes of drone manufacturing including complete Integration, Trouble shooting, Repair and Maintenance of the drone.

This is not a UAV or Drone Piloting course. With drones becoming completely autonomous, the need for UAV Technicians who understands the mechanics of the drone system is growing at a faster rate than the Pilots.

With this in mind, the training program is designed to give the participants the necessary skills to do Integration, Testing, Qualification, Repairs and Maintenance of various systems and subsystems of the drone.
The course combines principles of aeronautics, electronics and mechanical engineering giving participants the opportunity to work hands-on in multiple areas.

Learn;
● System Integration Techniques,
● Communication Systems,
● Electronic Circuits,
● Machine Design,
● Manufacturing Technology,
● Payloads Systems
