New $8M Grant for Future UAS Propulsion Research

Our research group has received an $8M research grant from the Army Research Laboratory as part of the Center for UAS Propulsion (CUP). The grant will fund pioneering research efforts in the following areas:

  • Flexible fuel UAS propulsion technologies
  • Fuel kinetics and modeling
  • Advanced medium-small size gas turbine technologies
  • High-speed (supersonic) air launch effects (ALE) – Ram and Scram modes
