A project called ARTEMIS propelled an Aerospace Systems Design Laboratory (ASDL) team to victory in a missile design competition.

ARTEMIS (formally known as the Aerial Reconnaissance Tactical Engagement Missile) won this year's AIAA Missile Systems Technical Committee Missile Design Competition. Seven students and three advisors made up the winning Missile Design Team from ASDL.

  • Barrett Tirey, Project Manager
  • Chris May, Chief Engineer
  • Noah Copeland, Structures
  • John Dykes, Trajectory
  • Calvin Chung, Aerodynamics
  • Taylor Brenci, Propulsion
  • Chase Leibenguth, Guidance
  • Technical Advisor:  Blaine Laughlin
  • Student Advisor: Brad Robinson
  • Faculty Advisor:  Dimitri Mavris
  • External Advisor:  Larry Fink, Boeing, Company, AIAA Missile Systems Technical Committee

The goal of this year's competition was to develop a small munition concept that could be launched from one or more classes of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) with emphasis on low cost, long range, and light weight.

After the ARTEMIS creators won this contest, their final report about it was sent to the U.S. Naval Air Warfare Center, which may eventually use it in development of a UAV-launched weapon concept.

Dr. Dimitri Mavris, an aerospace engineering professor, served as the team's faculty advisor, and a representative from The Boeing Company was also involved.  The Georgia Tech Missile Design team has participated in 16 annual missile competitions.
