We chose the national critical technology category of transportation
with a technical application of avionics: integrated airframe controls,
focusing on piezoelectric actuators. Our product is an airfoil that
will be kept at an ideal camber through the use of piezoelectric actuators so
that its optimal efficiency can be attained.
