GeoTEd-UAS is a project that is funded through the National Science Foundation (NSF). One component of the GeoTEd-ATE program was to support educators in their efforts to develop appropriate curriculum through a process known as a DACUM (Developing a Curriculum). The DACUM process is led by a panel, or focus group, that is comprised of individuals that are hold professional responsibilities associated with the particular employment sector. In this case, 8 sUAS technicians, identify the daily tasks, duties, and responsibilities associated with their jobs. These duties and tasks are charted, or mapped. This chart provides a foundation for educators to build courses, curricula, and / or certificate programs.
This particular DACUM was developed for sUAS operations technicians. The sUAS OT DACUM is intended to support the education of entry level sUAS technicians.
