In support to the research and educational activities, the FXB Center has direct access to a number of facilities within the Aerospace Engineering Department and within the University of Michigan as a whole.

Facilities of particular interest are:

  • 5×7 wind tunnel and 9 other wind tunnels (including a x by y supersonic wind tunnel)
  • Several experimental facilities for (smart) structural tests and evaluation, control, and aerodynamics
  • Experimental capabilities for prototyping and testing active structures
  • Basic hardware manufacturing facilities
  • Nanotube manufacturing and testing facility
