We have liftoff

A pair of Auburn aerospace engineering professors has been awarded a grant by NASA as part of the Transformational Tools and Technologies (TTT) project of the Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate (ARMD).

Imon Chakraborty, assistant professor, and Roy Hartfield, the Walt and Virginia Woltosz Professor, were awarded the three-year, $540,000 grant as a collaborative effort between Auburn University and Research in Flight to help develop a framework that allows stability and control characteristics of advanced and novel aircraft concepts to be studied in greater detail earlier in the design process.
