“Biologically Inspired Air Vehicle Design Principles”Prof.
Georgia Tech Research
No other air
vehicle design space has presented the
mix of challenges as that of miniature flight platforms. By
these tiny platforms are unmanned and endeavor to invade the flight
birds and insects. In order to do so, the creators of these
must address the same physical design constraints which have already
mastered by the world of airborne biology, including low Reynolds
aerodynamics, high energy density, and extreme miniaturization.
presentation focuses on the high degree of innovation required to make
practical miniaturized flying machines on the scale of small birds and
