Contact Arthur Mendez

Areas of expertise

  • Autonomous Systems
  • Flight Physics


Arthur completed his Bachelors (B.Tech) in Mechanical Engineering with a minor in Thermal Engineering from Manipal Institute of Technology. He moved to finish his MSc in Aerospace Dynamics with a specialisation in Flight dynamics and Control from Cranfield University. His MSc thesis focused on the gust rejection properties of quadrotors with tilted rotors. Following his MSc, Arthur started working as a Research Assistant in Flight Dynamics and Simulation within the Dynamics, Simulation and Control Group at Cranfield University. His work here involved the design, testing and validation of inner-loop Command and Stability Augmentation systems (CSAS) and outer-loop navigation and guidance systems for fixed-wing aircraft in the Future Systems Simulator (FSS). Arthur then started his Doctoral studies at Cranfield University with a focus on gust resilient control for multi-rotor aircraft.

Current activities

Arthur is currently pursuing his PhD within the Dynamics, Simulation and Control group at Cranfield University. His PhD research focuses on the gust resilient control for multi-rotor aircraft using wind preview methods.
