Miniature Air Vehicle Controlled and Propelled by Active Flow Control

The Invention Miniature Air Vehicles (MAV’s) with Active Flow Control (AFC) is an aviation invention in which the means for thrust generation, flight control and lift augmentation are created by the same fluidic actuators, located within the MAV.&n Read More >

Leading Researchers:

Flexible Blade Rheometer

The Invention The innovation is a low-cost flexible extension to the standard off-the-shelf rotational blade rheometer. State of the art rotational rheometers use fixed and rigid blades, which rotate against a fluid and have limited accuracy at extr Read More >

Sensor for Animal Monitoring

It is clear today that brain activity of a restrained (or sedated) animal is completely different from that of a freely behaving animal.  That is why neuroscientists are seeking to find ways to study animals freely behaving on their natural grou Read More >
