- How do birds interact with wind? - How do insects stabilize their flight? - How do blind fish avoid obstacles? - What can we learn from biology to help build better unmanned air vehicles? This exciting lecture will explain how engineering approaches can be used to study biological fluid dynamics, and show how this can provide inspiration for the development of autonomous systems.

scale development. Richard will also explain both the technical operation and operational
capabilities of what were two very different missile systems and the various different
operational concepts employed by the five nations that operated Bloodhound over a period of
nearly 40 years.
