Abstract: Tomorrow's air vehicles will need high functionality and aerodynamic performance with an unprecedented level of requirements on advanced component integration. An overview of promising flow control technologies will be discussed in the context of addressing these next-gen challenges.

Bio: Mr. Daniel Miller has led numerous air vehicle innovations in the areas of propulsion, aerodynamics, thermodynamics, flight controls, high energy laser integration, and composite structures. These technologies have been used on major programs including the F-35, F-22, C-130, and are being evaluated for next-generation platforms.

Based on his technical accomplishments, Daniel has earned the prestigious position of Senior Technical Fellow in the Air Vehicle Sciences & Systems organization of the Skunk Works®.   Daniel's accomplishments include 24 U.S. and European patents granted with 20 additional patents pending; more than 50 technical publications; co-editor and co-author of an AIAA textbook on flow control; co-instructor of an AIAA short course series at 10 conferences; and 20 invited lectures hosted by academia, government, and professional societies.

Daniel has received the highly coveted Corporate NOVA award, which is the Lockheed Martin Corporation’s highest award for technical achievement, and the LM Aeronautics Company AeroStar award. In addition, AIAA, ASME, SAE, and academia have honored him with various awards for his superior contributions. 

Daniel holds both a Master of Science and a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Wisconsin. He is an Associate Fellow of AIAA.
