Data Enabled Dynamic Thrust Measurement

Sustainability icon, disabled. A green leaf.

The objective of this project is to create an apparatus and associated testing standards in order to more effectively measure aircraft propulsion data. The data gathered is useful in choosing the most efficient thrust-generating configuration for use in small-scale aircraft such as drones. Future work will utilize these tools to test efficiency of different thrust-generating setups for said small-scale work.
