The Aerospace Systems Design Laboratory (ASDL) was founded in 1992 to bridge the gap between academia and industry research perspectives, and it has grown to be one of the nation's premier entities for aerospace systems and complex design. Dr. Dimitri Mavris, director of ASDL, will present on some of the capabilities of the lab and has invited AIAA Atlanta to view the facilities first hand. Come get a glimpse of future aerospace technology and connect with Georgia Tech faculty, researchers, and AIAA student chapter members.
