Unmanned and Autonomous Systems Engineering at Embry Riddle.

Richard Stansbury is an Associate Professor of Computer Engineering and Computer Science and Program Coordinator for the M.S. in Unmanned and Autonomous Systems Engineering. As a student at the University of Kansas, where he received his college degrees, he developed robotic vehicles for operation in Greenland and Antarctica. At ERAU, his research transitioned to unmanned aircraft systems. Initially, he supported FAA funded projects to survey UAS technologies and identify regulatory gaps. In 2010, Dr. Stansbury began work as part of a multidisciplinary team on a UAS, Gale, for NOAA to provide measurement of atmospheric conditions within hurricanes. He is leading ERAU’s bid for an FAA Center of Excellence in Unmanned Aircraft Systems under the multi-university ASSURE Coalition. He is also on the AUVSI unmanned aircraft advocacy committee and AIAA Unmanned Systems Program Committee.

John Robbins is an Assistant Professor. His research interests include engineering and safety issues currently affecting the aviation community, Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) applications, and extension/outreach curriculum development and implementation. He teaches Unmanned Aircraft Systems, Flight Techniques and Analysis and Unmanned Aircraft Systems Robotics. He is a commercially rated pilot in both fixed-wing and rotor-wing aircraft with a total flight time of 6,000 hours.


This is an informative program presented by the faculty from our local and prestigious Embry Riddle Aeronautical University. Everyone is invited, please join us. If you cannot make the dinner you are welcome to come at 7:30 to hear the presentation.
