Welcome to the AUVSI Pathfinder website.  As we celebrate nearly 30 years as a Chapter in 2019, we are truly grateful for the continuous support provided by our partners, sponsors, members and the unmanned community here in the Tennessee Valley.  Since the AUVSI Pathfinder Chapter was established, the Pathfinder Chapter has positioned itself at the forefront of the unmanned community.

Guided by our Chapter objectives to: a) Provide an organization for individuals who have a common interest in, and who wish to foster and expand, the domain of Unmanned Vehicle Systems, b) Advance technology, c) Exchange ideas and information in the field of Unmanned Vehicle Systems and to recognize the advances and contributions thereto, and d) Promote the education of the membership and the general public in the field of Unmanned Vehicle Systems, e) Document the history of Unmanned Vehicle Systems, we have continued to challenge ourselves to provide opportunities for our members and the local community through our annual symposium, grant programs, support of local robotics events and our partnership with the AUVSI Pathfinder student chapter at the University of Alabama Huntsville (UAH). 

I am honored to be able to build on the strong foundation established by our previous president and board members.  My journey in the unmanned community started in the US Army in 1994 and I have been blessed to be able to remain in this industry for most of my professional career.  The friendships and mentorships that the AUVSI Pathfinder Chapter has provided for me are significant and enduring and it gives me great pleasure to see those same types of relationships established at our monthly meetings and annual events. 

If you are considering joining a world class organization dedicated to the advancement of unmanned systems and robotics, the AUVSI Pathfinder Chapter welcomes you.

It's easy to get started creating your website. Knowing some of the basics will help. What is a Content Management System? A content management system is software that allows you to create and manage webpages easily by separating the creation of your content from the mechanics required to present it on the web. In this site, the content is stored in a database . The look and feel are created by a template . Joomla! brings together the template and your content to create web pages. Logging in To login to your site use the user name and password that were created as part of the installation process. Once logged-in you will be able to create and edit articles and modify some settings. Creating an article Once you are logged-in, a new menu will be visible. To create a new article, click on the "Submit Article" link on that menu. The new article interface gives you a lot of options, but all you need to do is add a title and put something in the content area. To make it easy to find, set the state to published. You can edit an existing article by clicking on the edit icon (this only displays to users who have the right to edit). Template, site settings, and modules The look and feel of your site is controlled by a template. You can change the site name, background colour, highlights colour and more by editing the template settings. Click the "Template Settings" in the user menu. The boxes around the main content of the site are called modules. You can modify modules on the current page by moving your cursor to the module and clicking the edit link. Always be sure to save and close any module you edit. You can change some site settings such as the site name and description by clicking on the "Site Settings" link. More advanced options for templates, site settings, modules, and more are available in the site administrator. Site and Administrator Your site actually has two separate sites. The site (also called the front end) is what visitors to your site will see. The administrator (also called the back end) is only used by people managing your site. You can access the administrator by clicking the "Site Administrator" link on the "User Menu" menu (visible once you login) or by adding /administrator to the end of your domain name. The same user name and password are used for both sites. Learn more There is much more to learn about how to use Joomla! to create the web site you envision. You can learn much more at the Joomla! documentation site and on the Joomla! forums .
