I thought the course would cover unmanned systems content in much more detail than it does. Its really just a survey course where you could get most of this information by just reading the industry news and press releases over the past 12 months or so. There is nothing in here that is unique, so I was kind of disappointed overall. The course has some value for someone who knows nothing about the sUAS industry. Beyond that level, the value is very limited and I would not recommend it to anyone who already has a basic knowledge of UAVs and sUASs.
