The Michigan/AFRL Collaborative Center in Control Science (MACCCS or MAX) consists of university faculty members along with post-doctoral fellows and graduate students who conduct research in partnership with the Control Science Center of Excellence in the Air Force Research Laboratory’s Air Vehicles Directorate. Current member universities include the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Purdue University.

The technical focus for MAX is developing advances in control science related to:

  • The cooperative control of unmanned air vehicles
  • The modeling and control of hypersonic vehicles

Mathematical models, algorithms, and specially developed software will be the critical research contributions and are important products of the collaboration.
