 Background

  

 Project

  

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.
