Workforce Development

It is critical that a workforce be trained in unmanned and autonomous systems. While some functions remain the same, this disruptive technology could be viewed negatively by the public as taking their jobs. But these new systems still need human talent to design, operate, maintain, and collect and process the data the systems provide. Additionally, with the new technology comes new regulations, guidelines, and standards to safely employ them and take advantage of their strengths and mitigate their weaknesses.

ASSURE is made up of universities, including a community college, who obvious purpose is to educate and train the next generation so that they can provide for themselves and their families and serve the greater good.
