Study reveals birds' surprising sound source
A team that brings together physics, biology, computation and engineering finds that an organ unique to birds, the syrinx, confers an advantage: by sitting so low in the airway, the syrinx can produce sound with very high efficiency. Their results are published in PLoS Biology.
BYU researchers unfold new class of mechanical devices
In a paper published today in Science Robotics, engineers at Brigham Young University detail new technology that allows them to build complex mechanisms into the exterior of a structure without taking up any actual space below the surface.
Students build smaller, equally powerful version of Village Drill
The nonprofit behind the Village Drill, WHOlives.org, and BYU engineering students have teamed up again to make a smaller but equally powerful version of the tool that can still reach depths over 100 feet and costs less than $2,500 per well to a local community.
BYU creating new breed of drones that can navigate without GPS
BYU research into “GPS-denied environments” is producing a new breed of fixed-wing UAVs that can navigate effectively when GPS signals are intermittent, interrupted, degraded or altogether nonexistent.
BYU develops multi-university capstone program for UAV research
As one of the nation’s academic leaders in UAV research, BYU has partnered with Boeing to develop a multi-university capstone course to help engineering graduates acquire needed skills in the area of drone research.
Brigham Young University: A national center for UAV research
BYU is home to the Center for Unmanned Aircraft Systems — the only National Science Foundation-funded unmanned aircraft research center in the country.
BYU researchers develop a new wildfire smoke emissions model
A BYU chemical engineering professor and his Ph.D. student have developed an advanced model that can help predict pollution caused by wildfire smoke.
NSF asks BYU profs to build new receiver for one of world's largest radio telescopes
The National Science Foundation has awarded the pair a $5.8 million grant to mount a super-sensitive super-antenna at the focal point of the 1000-foot diameter Arecibo dish.
