Overall Directory

I’m working on a directory of people who have any connection to FWMAVs/Ornithopters. A very rough initial version has been attached to the website via Box.net. If you work with FWMAVs, or know someone who does, leave a comment with their name and a link to confirm something they are doing and I will add them to “The Directory”.

Industry Partnerships

In addition, to facilitate the development of control techniques for flapping wings, we have worked with colleagues at AVID LLC.  They are working more from a design perspective to develop dynamic models of a flapping wing system.
