“You’ve got a great opportunity here to take advantage of the equipment, the interaction you’ll have with others, the connection to other laboratories — the variety of things you can do here to open up things for yourselves,” Kendall said, according to the report.

Florida-based TEQGames developed a classroom at Cardozo into a test and evaluation lab with three dual-pilot flight simulators, nine stations for remotely piloted vehicles and an air traffic control tower to provide a learning environment that simulates real-world missions.
