Dronevolution

By | 8 Nov 2017

The Air Transport Training College (ATTC) Dronevolution is a three-part competition initiated by Singapore Institute of Aerospace Engineers (SIAE) to debut in 2017. The aim is to create awareness of drone technology among youths by reaching out to schools, polytechnics, colleges and university students. Our mission is to establish an aviation stronghold amongst our next generation of professionals.

Dronevolution is part of a long-term initiative to launch ATTC as a drone hub. Situated in our very own hangar, budding drone enthusiasts can utilise this platform to meet and collaborate with like-minded individuals as well as cultivate their interest without the constraint of space. The three-part competition concept promotes continuity and comprehensiveness of ideas.

Objectives
• Introduce drone technology to the new generation
• Interaction opportunity for drone enthusiasts

Program
The first of its series, Dronevolution: Safe Haven will focus primarily on drone hub layout. The challenge is for participants to engineer a Drone Park, complete with obstacle courses and features entirely up to their imagination. Attractive prizes aside, participants stand a chance to witness the actualisation of their dream drone hub, setting the stage for future drone events. Ultimately, the intention is to build a drone hub for drone lovers, by drone lovers.

Participants start off with given hangar dimensions and a budget. Following a tour and workshop conducted by a team of professionals organised by ATTC, each team is to design a drone park, supplemented with a business and construction plan.
