Welcome to our research page. Led by Associate Professor
our group has two main branches involving flight in or through the
We have developed a unique design methodology for creating geometries
suitable for use in Rocket Based Combined
Cycle (RBCC) engines. This geometry, called the exchange
in the figure on the right), is currently undergoing experimental
testing for implementation on next generation space launch vehicles.
Along side this research our group has also developed an in-house
quad-rotor design (also shown on the right). This is being used to
innovative autopilot designs for use in the turbulence generated within
urban environments. This vehicle is also being used in studies
involving the automation and co-ordination of flocks of flying vehicles
for purposes such as search and rescue, territory surveillance, etc.
