Projects

In 2009, the lab has successfully launched and is still operating the first university satellite of Turkey: ITUpSAT I. In addition, the laboratory has designed the first commercial avionics system of an indigenous light commercial helicopter. Commercial works completed within the lab include a full flight mission simulator, a micro-avionics system for UAVs and various autonomous air vehicles. In 2012, laboratories’ work on autonomous flight control systems for unmanned combat vehicles appeared as the cover of IEEE Control Systems Magazine.
