Summer School IPSA Juillet 2018

2-21 juillet 2018 - Paris & Toulouse

«Imagine, Develop & Fly»! Make your Micro Aerial Vehicles (MAVs)

The summer program aims at providing key concepts in design, modeling and control of micro aerial vehicles (MAVs) covering both theoretical and experimental aspects. In this regard, specific drone configurations will be studied. Detailed simulations including realistic aerodynamic effects will be realized using CFD tools (STAR ccm+) to assess theses forces. Wind tunnel tests will also be carried out to firstly, achieve a real observation of the drone dynamics, and then to validate the CFD simulations results.


Courses, lectures and workshops, experimental tests, survival french + discover Paris: Street art in Paris, Space and Air Museum, Château de Versailles. Etc…
