SURE participants and Aerospace Engineeringundergrads Ryan Kitson (left) and Jingyu Liu (right) work on a flight test vehicle (FTV) that is part of the X-Hale Project created by Aerospace Professor Carlos Cesnik. The X-Hale project is an experimental vehicle outfitted with strain gauges, accelerometers, and other measurement devices along with a data collection system to compare the behavior predicted by the simulations to real experimental data.Over the summer, as part of SURE, Kitson and Liu have helped manufacture, assemble, and flight test the FTV in preparation for executing flight tests with sponsors at a restricted airspace in Indiana at the end of August.Photo: Joseph Xu, Michigan Engineering Communications & MarketingHistory
