ASDL maintains state-of-the-art facilities to support the analysis and design of complex systems and decision making. These four assets leverage computational and visualization technologies to distill information from expert knowledge, transform and reprocess information and present it to the decision maker to enable holistic understanding of the comprehensive problem at hand.
Collaborative Design Environment (CoDE)
The CoDE enables researchers to develop, test and apply new approaches to conceptual design by utilizing high-fidelity modeling, simulation and analysis tools in a collaborative, team-centered environment. It can also support student teams participating in select graduate-level design competitions.
Collaborative Visualization Environment (CoVE)
The CoVE provides designers of complex systems with the capability to explore design spaces with hundreds of design parameters and incorporating multiple analyses. This collaborative environment allows the decision-makers to interact with the multiple domain experts and analysts, who may be located at different sites.
Adaptive Design Prototyping and Testing Lab
The purpose of the Office of Naval Research sponsored Advanced Design Prototyping and Testing Laboratory is to foster collaborative research and education/training across multidisciplinary teams of students, researchers and practitioners in the emerging field of autonomous systems.
Unmanned Air Vehicle Shop
The ASDL UAV Shop is equipped to support the design, manufacture and testing of unmanned vehicles. The lab is used to support the Georgia Tech entries into UAV design competitions like the AIAA Design-Build-Fly and SAE Aero-Design, as well as contract research projects, like constructing an autonomous surface vehicle for the U.S Navy.
ASDL at Georgia Tech-Lorraine
ASDL also has a presence at the Georgia Tech-Lorraine campus in Metz, France, which is part of a multidisciplinary initiative designed to complement ongoing research at GTL and address other systems engineering studies in Europe.
