Biomimetics in Aerospace Systems

About this Research Topic

During the millions of years of evolution, nature has developed processes, objects, materials, and functions to increase efficiency. Nature always has effective solutions for many complex tasks in aerospace industries, such as drag reductions techniques, locomotion, navigation, control, sensing, and aircrafts design.

Through biomimicry and inspiration from this treasure trove, engineers and biologists have become interested in learning from biological insights. Sometimes looking at nature provides us the best answers for the development and optimization of different types of systems, including aerospace systems. The growing science of biomimicry focuses on what engineers can learn about efficient solutions for aerospace systems that nature has spent millions of years refining. As an example, one of the interesting aspects of avian flight dynamics is how natural flyers, such as birds and insects can deform their shape to optimize their flight in different flight modes. Therefore, the concept of morphing structures for aerial vehicles can be originated from the observation of birds as the fly.

This Research Topic invites submissions that apply knowledge learned and inspired by nature and biological systems to solve concrete aerospace engineering problems, including but not limited to the following bio-inspired topics:

• Drones and planetary exploration robots
• Morphing design for aerospace systems
• Biomimetics and drag reduction in aerospace systems
• Avian/insect inspired aerospace systems
• Materials for aerospace structures
• Control techniques for aerospace systems
• Biomimetics and multisensory navigation
• Propulsion systems for aerospace systems
• Flocking and swarming flight of autonomous systems
• Amphibious systems


Keywords: Bioinspiration, Biomimetics, Drones, Space Exploration, Robotics


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
