Air traffic controllers are helping UNSW researchers build intelligent systems that complement the human brain and reduce errors in some of our most challenging work environments.
With pressure mounting to finally build Sydney’s second airport at Badgerys Creek, how can we avoid the noise mistakes of the past, ask Marion Burgess and David Southgate.
Upgrading our ageing air traffic management infrastructure by importing off-the-shelf solutions does nothing to build local capacity and could jeopardise the future safety of our skies, writes Hussein Abbass.
An international team of physicists has pushed the boundaries on ultra-precise measurement by harnessing the unusual properties of quantum light waves in a new way.
Uncovering the aerodynamic secrets of insect flight to create micro-air vehicles has won UNSW Canberra’s John Young the 2012 ACT Young Tall Poppy of the Year award.
Using bumblebee aerodynamics to enhance flying robots and research to improve aircraft engine reliability has won two PhD students from UNSW Canberra Amelia Earhart Fellowships.
Researchers have achieved a breakthrough in quantum communications and computing using a teleporter and a paradoxical cat.
Researchers are closer to creating a micro-aircraft that flies with the manoeuvrability and energy efficiency of an insect after decoding the aerodynamic secrets of insect flight.
