Abstract:

The PI and collaborators were interested in testing the hypothesized advantage of sensing flow disturbance before initiating an inertial response. The PI successfully completed flight trails in wind tunnels and in atmospheric turbulence. Their mitigation system reduced aircraft roll by up to 50 . In addition to the final report, the PI has 10 publications andor conference proceedings as a result of the grant.
