Our fundamental and applied research on autonomous systems and controls aims to enable greater autonomy for explorations of land, sea, sky and space.
Together with Computer Science, Electrical Engineering and Physics, we are pursuing a research effort aimed at blunting this danger to the future of transportation.
Distributed Space Systems (DSS) consist of two or more satellites that interact to accomplish scientific, commercial or technological objectives that are otherwise very difficult if not impossible to achieve using a traditional monolithic spacecraft.
Our aircraft design research focuses on these enabling technologies and their application to future flight concepts.
Our research in computational aerosciences is driven by the daring technologies underlying next-generation aerospace systems.
Several of our faculty are working at the forefront of materials and structures development.
