Our vision

Applied research to solve real-world problems

Our research portfolio is filled with ambition, passion and practical application.

Our mission is to inspire society and the world through discovering, applying and sharing knowledge.

The Applied Aerodynamics and Flow Control laboratory here at the University of Alabama in Huntsville has its focus directed toward fundamental and applied problems of active flow control, and aircraft design & performance. Our work is primarily experimental and can be broadly classified under the following categories:

  1. Active Flow Control
  2. Morphing Wing Design
  3. Aircraft Stability and Control
  4. Design, Implementation and Flight Testing of Reconfigurable Unmanned Aerial Vehicles
