Applied Engineering Research
Laboratory for Advanced Instrumentation Research (LAIR)
The Laboratory for Advanced Instrumentation Research (LAIR) on the Daytona Beach Campus is organized under the College of Arts and Sciences, but the lab provides support to all programs and faculty.
One of LAIR's first contracts was with Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility (Jefferson Lab). The task was to design kernel-level software drivers that medical imaging equipment could use to interface with various computer platforms. Jefferson Labs was so pleases with the results that they extended additional contracts to use the LAIR for continuous support for other instrument development projects.
In addition to outside contracts, the LAIR has also been used for internally funded research. This internally funded research has revolved around autonomous systems. The autonomous systems research touches many areas and will provide insight into many areas including autonomous planetary exploration. (See photo at right)
The LAIR is also home to the Moon Buggy Club. Currently, LAIR employees are assisting student and faculty research projects, as well as externally funded research. The LAIR is a valuable resource for all faculty and staff.
