Ryan Twedt of Hendricks part of team

Engineering students at South Dakota State Univer­sity are designing a drone large enough to carry a hu­man for their capstone se­nior design project through a nearly $80,000 grant from NASA.
“NASA wants to address specific topics, one of which is related to innovation in aeronautic transportation,” explained assistant me­chanical engineering pro­fessor Marco Ciarcià, the senior design group’s proj­ect adviser. “The air trans­portation initiative aims to gather innovative ideas and to inspire young engineers. Our team is proposing an autonomous aerotaxi; an­other team might propose something completely dif­ferent, like to develop a soft­ware for air traffic manage­ment, for example.”
