Air Systems Lab

The Air Systems Laboratory (ASL) is student focused and is instrumental in allowing us to extend the state-of-the art in teaching and research, especially with regard to Unmanned Air Systems (UAS).

The ASL supports our capstone aircraft design course, provides work and meeting areas for our AIAA Design/Build/Fly (DBF) and Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) student teams as well as the more recently established Longhorn Rocket Association. The ASL is involved in air vehicle and unmanned air system research involving both graduate and undergraduate students. About half of the department’s undergraduates (250 of 500) are interested in aircraft design and benefit from this facility.
