We learn about sensors and how to program the drone to use sensors to fly autonomously. We learn how to communicate so that a pilot that cannot see the drone can fly missions guided by a forward observer that can see the drone. We learn, we fly, we program, we crash. Then we repeat and get better.
The TKA JROTC Orienteering Team is a team that works on map reading and land navigation through the woods. Orienteering is one of the most adventurous special teams and consists of map and compass reading, forest navigation, and physical fitness. At the beginning of the season orienteering consists of classes teaching cadets how to read a topographical map and various other skills but once we get out of the classroom the real fun begins. Training will consist of lots of running and navigating on our campus course to prepare us for when we get to competitions. At competitions cadets will be given a map and a set of coordinates, the coordinates must then be translated onto the map and cadets will run off into the woods to search for those points while navigating obstacles such has hills, dense brush, and rivers.
