New Bird and Drone Wind Tunnel Lab

Our world-class wind tunnel facility for studying bird flight and drone testing has been opened by Dean Persis Drell, Chair Ken Goodson and our previous Chair Fritz Prinz. The opening was featured by Stanford News and the website of Science Magazine. The wind tunnel has very low turbulence, is particularly silent and can run at speeds ranging from 0 to 50 meters per second. The facility includes a gust generation system and is XROMM ready. A full story and video showing the facility, including a bird flying in the tunnel and a time lapse of the construction, where featured in the Stanford News article and many other media.
