New Terraflora treatment extends shelf-life of cut flowers

Researchers in the Materials and Manufacturing group have been working with Terraflora to validate a consumer product that will extend the shelf-life of cut flowers by slowing water loss through the flowers’ leaves and stems.

Using Additive Manufacturing to Improve Supersonic Air Vehicle Design

Researchers at ARI are studying using additively manufactured materials to improve the design and performance of support structures within super- and hypersonic air vehicles.

Studying ATONs to reduce risk and improve effectiveness

Mariners rely on aids to navigation (ATONs) to chart safe courses and reduce unsafe incidents. ARI is working with the Coast Guard to study ATONs to support decision-making to balance safety, cost, and resilience of the ATON network.
