Abstract:

This report summarizes final results from a multidisciplinary effort to investigate the application of MEMS to the control of low Reynolds number flows about Micro Air Vehicles MAVs. The specific goals of this investigation were to develop a quantitative and qualitative understanding of microelectromechanical systems MEMS based sensor and actuator interactions with low Reynolds number flows found on MAVs, resulting in improved aerodynamic performance and mechanisms for active and passive flight control. The detailed results are made available in various publications which are summarized here.
