DURIP award for new XROMM facility

Our lab received a DURIP Award for XROMM operating at 1000+Hz to enable new research on bird wing morphing. The facility includes two large diameter fluoroscopes that record wing skeletal motion in 3D while birds fly freely. The state-of-the-art facility in combination with our new wind tunnel is a game-changer for bird biomechanics research and morphing wing design.
