About MAST Lab

The Aerospace Sciences Research Division is committed to pursuing research using the latest resources and technology. The Micro Air Systems Technology (MAST) laboratory provides the ideal platform for research and investigation of small-scale autonomous vehicles and their associated technologies. A recent addition to the Division, the MAST lab is intended to house a variety of micro air vehicles and accompanying technologies. Current systems include a quadrotor MAV capable of autonomous flight, several coaxial RC helicopters and the Qbot unmanned ground vehicle. The…
