Welcome to the Home Page for the inflatable Unmanned Aerial Vehicle at Clarkson University, Potsdam, New York.
The i-UAV Team is an interdisciplinary group of faculty and students in the Schools of Engineering and Arts and Sciences interested in aeronautical and space design, dynamic systems, controls, and optimisation. The links in this web page provide further information about the faculty and students who participate in the team, the academic departments they come from, their activities, and the available interdisciplinary projects available.
Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) and Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicles (UCAV) will play an increasingly important role in future military operations. While unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) like the Predator have served effectively as part of the global war on terrorism, Joint Forces Command and the Navy are continuing to examine refinements for new UAV. There are a number of significant challenges associated with the development of new UAV and advanced control system for these vehicle systems.
The i-UAV team membes combine expertize and capabilities from a broad range of disciplines. Professors from Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering Department and from Mathematics and Computer Science and Physics are working together with a group of talented students toward the design, modeling, realization and tests of novel UAV concept.
Their expertize are in

  • Design, analysis, and testing of a variety of aerospace vehicles, dynamical systems and control systems. 

  • Unsteady Aerodynamics, CFD, Experimental Aerodynamics

  • Chaos Theory and Dynamical Systems, Stochastic Dynamical Systems and Noise induced transport mechanism, Hamiltonian Dynamics, Symbol Dynamics, Model reduction, sensing.
