The Autonomous Flight Systems Laboratory (AFSL) in the William E. Boeing Department of Aeronautics & Astronautics is holding an information meeting to inform students about upcoming research opportunities in the area of Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) for the 2015 – 2016 academic year. For more information, please see that attached flyer.
What: UAS Student Research Opportunity Meeting
Who: Any UW student (both undergraduate and graduate)
When: October 1, 2015, 2:30 – 3:20pm
Where: Guggenheim 305
Why: Learn more about UAS activities/opportunities in the AA department
The three major programs that will be covered at this meeting are:
-Students design, fabricate, and demonstrate flight capabilities of an unmanned, radio controlled aircraft.
-Students compete in an international fly-off in the spring.
2. Control and Usability of UAS
-Students will investigate control systems for UAS
-Students will build autonomous fixed wing, multi-rotor, and ground vehicles.
3. Wind Tunnel Testing of Complex Ice Shapes
-This project involves creating wind tunnel models of complex ice shapes.
-Students will use CAD and 3D printing to generate these models.
