AI Tactical Skills:
Drone Ethical Hacker & Defender - Build -> Hack -> Detect & Defend 
Course Outline:

Level 1 and Level 2 are both 5 day courses structured and designed to firstly be dynamically updated based on industry evolution and expected levels of competent skills and practical real-world capabilities for building, modifying and designing robotic vehicles, with focus on drones, UAV, UAS, AI/ML, swarming, hardware, software and latest sensors.

No prior knowledge of robotics or UAV’s, everything you need to establish your foundational skills for building, modifying, Ai robotics, drone flight planning, security, hack, detect forensically and defend.

This is a hands-on practical course, straight to the point, you are guaranteed to leave this class with the skills needed to deal with all types of AI robotics, drones and autonomous vehicles.

We will utilize in this course:

1: A pre-built mobile hardware system such as a Raspberry Pi or a laptop.

2: Live Cloud based remote lab range and electronic interactive content

Note: Optional, use your own hardware as we will provide a link to the images for the custom OS systems we use on the Raspberry Pi's.
