The Aerospace, Transportation and Advanced Systems Laboratory (ATAS)
is one of eight labs in the Georgia Tech Research Institute
. ATAS develops advanced systems concepts and performs research related to aerospace
systems, power and energy systems, threat systems, intelligent autonomous systems
, and systems engineering
methodologies. The lab also develops advanced technologies and performs research in a range of areas relevant to aerospace and ground transportation as well as to national defense.
Current contracts include work in aerodynamics
and flow control, aeroacoustics
, computational aeroelasticity
, wind tunnel
testing, aircraft structural analysis, rotorcraft, intelligent systems
, fuel cell
and battery technologies, smart small scale projectiles, embedded computing, unmanned aerial vehicles
, and flight stability and control.
The lab also performs applied research
and development of radar
-related technologies in support of national defense preparedness. The lab’s prototype development capabilities span the spectrum from mechanical and electronics design and fabrication to full system integration including embedded computing and control systems
. ATAS has also achieved a national reputation for its expertise in threat systems, advanced transmitter
technology, radar system development, and weapon systems interpretation.
Within ATAS, the Food Processing Technology Division's (FPTD) Agricultural Technology Research Program
(ATRP) conducts significant... Read More
