Sinclair has become the first community college in the country to join a federal research consortium on unmanned aerial systems (UAS), or drones.

That comes after the college in Dayton spent around $10 million over the last few years to invest in facilities, permits and new courses focused on development of UAS technologies and workforce training for those who want to go into the industry. In 2015, the school unveiled a new UAS test center at its downtown Dayton campus.
