Two Department of Aerospace Engineering professors have had their research featured on the Iowa State University web site home page.

“Flight path to adventure” highlights the work of assistant professor Peng Wei and assistant professor Kristin Yvonne Rozier in developing a software prototype for the Federal Aviation Administration to manage low-altitude air traffic in the crowded skies of the United States. The project received a $1 million grant from the National Science Foundation.

The story is one of a series of “adventure”-themed front page stories compiled by University News Service. It can be viewed on the university home page here.
