    Tip Vortex Wake

    Researchers are working to develop methods of measuring the optical behavior of compressible turbulent flows and then mitigating the effects of that behavior on aircraft-mounted optical devices.

    Predictive Approach

    The objective of the predictive approach is to compensate for adaptive optic system latency.

  • Compressible flow field research

    Compressible Flow Field

    The Aero-Optics Group has generated a new physical understanding of a number of important aero-optical flows — including turbulent boundary layers, separated shear layers, and flow over optical turrets — through numerical and experimental investigations.
