AbstractThis talk presents relevant events occurring recently at Texas A&M in the area of aerospace guidance and control. In September 2012, Texas A&M was part of a six-university team that was named as the new FAA Center of Excellence in General Aviation Research. This is a 10-year award focused on safety and sustainability research for general aviation. Other highlights include Dr. John Valasek’s publication of two new books and creation of two new undergraduate classes, namely a UAV Ground Station Design course and Rotorcraft Senior Design (Capstone). These courses are meant to increase student participation in the multidisciplinary design process with an emphasis on technologies relevant to today’s aerospace research and development thrusts. Finally, the Helicopter and Unmanned Systems Laboratory (HUSL) was established over the past year by Dr. Jonathan Rogers. HUSL research occurs at the intersection of vehicle design and flight dynamics and control. Application areas of interest include unmanned aircraft and rotorcraft, smart weapons, and guided parafoils, among others. TAMU is greatly accelerating its research activities in autonomous systems through large-scale resource, facilities, and vehicle investments.
