UAV Students Will Participate in CSE's Homecoming Celebration Sept. 27th

AEM's Uninhabited Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Research Lab will be providing an interactive demonstration at the College of Science and Engineering's 7th Annual Homecoming Celebration on Friday, September 27, 2013.

To display the lab's accomplishments and research, students Andrew Mahon and Ryan Carlson will be displaying the Thor aircraft, an Ultrastick 25 E, and flying Parrot and Vaptor demonstration aircraft. Attendees will have the opportunity to test Thor's control services and learn how similar aircraft are being used for the lab's navigation and fuel efficiency research.

"This is our second year participating in the CSE Homecoming celebration," said Brian Taylor, UAV Lab Director. "We enjoy hearing about the experiences of people who have graduated from the department and showing them all the cool research we are doing."

The UAV Research Lab supports research activities within the department of Aerospace Engineering and Mechanics, including control, navigation and guidance algorithms; embedded fault detection methods; and system identification tools.

"This event is a great opportunity to advertise ourselves and hear from alumni and their families," said Taylor.

Last year 400 CSE alumni and friends attended the FREE event, which includes a barbeque buffet, photo booth, painting and balloon art, and CSE string backpacks for the first 100 kids.
