  • UAS Severe Weather
    Building on years of collaboration using unmanned aircraft to fly into the storms that create the massive tornadoes that rip across the Midwest, the Unmanned Aircraft System and Severe Storms Research Group (USSRG) builds upon a partnership between AES Professors Dr. Brian Argrow and Dr. Eric Frew and UN-L atmospheric scientist Dr. Adam Houston.
  • Dan Scheeres

    On November 21, 2014, six University of Colorado faculty members were named Distinguished Professors, the most prestigious honor for faculty at the university.

  • Aerostat Team Photo

    About 10 students from University of Colorado Boulder are part of team Aircraft for Rhino and Environmental Defense AREND. In addition to the students from Colorado, it consists of students from South Africa, Germany and Finland. They are competing in the Wildlife Conservation UAV Challenge to design, build and fly an unmanned aerial system (UAS) to support anti-poaching operations at Kruger National Park in South Africa.

  • CU-Boulder AeroSpace Ventures

    CU AeroSpace Ventures is a collaboration among aerospace-related departments, institutes, centers, and industry partners to create knowledge and develop new technologies to observe, measure and better understand Earth and space. CU AeroSpace Ventures focuses on: 
    Unmanned and autonomous aircraft, small satellites, and Earth and space sensors.

  • Alumni award recipient

    Marine Corps Capt. Joseph Diniega (AeroEng’05) stopped by CU-Boulder recently to present a special American flag to the Department of Aerospace Engineering Sciences (AES).

  • Space tug

    Out of 1,200 large objects in geostationary orbit 36,000 kilometers above the Earth, two-thirds of them are dead communications and Earth-observing satellites, spent rocket bodies, or pieces of such objects. Such debris creates a growing hazard for still-functioning satellites. Professor HP Schaub’s research is featured in Wired magazine.

  • Pillar Array

    AES faculty member Prof. Mahmoud Hussein and doctoral student Bruce Davis have found a creative way to radically improve thermoelectric materials, a finding that could one day lead to the development of improved solar panels, more energy-efficient cooling equipment, and even the creation of new devices that could turn the vast amounts of heat wasted at power plants into more electricity.
