Drones to learn from flight path of butterfly

“One of the underlying goals of our study is to develop a drone that can fly as long as a migrating Monarch,” Sridhar says. “The annual migration of Monarch butterflies is the longest among insects. It can be 3,000 kilometers long! Even the state-of-the-art drones cannot show these long ranges.”

Madhu Sridhar’s paper won the 2019 #AIAA Atmospheric Flight Mechanics Graduate Student Paper Competition. https://bit.ly/37DLYLt

In a finding that could benefit drone design, award-winning research by a doctoral student at The University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH) shows that the undulating flight paths of Monarch butterflies are actually more energy-efficient than a straight-line path. Madhu Sridhar’s paper won the 2019...

I have attended several AIAA conferences as a trailing spouse, which is a terrible name. I don’t know anyone else at the conference other than my spouse, who is at meetings and papers during the day. I would enjoy the opportunity to meet and network with other trailing spouses. I sat by the pool at the recent Orlando conference and observed several trailing spouses hanging out. I spoke to several and they would also like an opportunity to meet others. Not asking for much how about a small room and a spot in the program on the first morning of the conference? Sell as a family friendly thing and more people want to attend! Just my thought, hope someone else reads this post! 😊 Thank you
