Director's Message

Hello – welcome to the Mechanical Engineering Unmanned Systems Lab at Virginia Tech. Our lab offers the ideal environment for air and ground vehicle research and testing. Several graduate students and senior design teams can be found at our lab. We have extensive experience in operating unmanned helicopters, and welcome new opportunities. If you are interested in working with a dynamic group of faculty and students equally capable in algorithm development, hardware design and fabrication, and flight test, then you have come to the right place.

Explore the website, and if you can visit, great. Feel free to contact me for more information about the Unmanned Systems Lab. Thanks for visiting!
