Research Statement

Dr. S.N.Omkar is currently working as a Chief Research Scientist at the Department of Aerospace Engineering, Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore. His research involves both computational and experimental approaches.
Dr. Omkar has contributed significantly to the field of Helicopter dynamics. His research involves helicopter model development, system identification and control. A neuro controller, based on flight data, has been developed to meet the ADS-33 handling quality specifications. The research in this field has resulted in 7 journal publications. He has also procured a 7Kg class helicopter UAV and is planning to make it autonomous. Dr. Omkar has developed a number of UAV with rotary configuration. He is presently working on a novel concept of tilt rotor UAV and has already demonstrated a successful flight.
Dr. Omkar is pursuing several projects and research work in the area of satellite image processing. He has developed a number of algorithms and used them for a variety of applications like road extraction, flood assessment, crop classification, crop growth analysis, urban fringe development etc. His work in this area has resulted in 14 publications (10 journals+ 4 book chapters).
The other facet of Dr.Omkar’s research includes composite design optimization using nature inspired techniques. He has used the state-of-art algorithms both serial and parallel mode of implementation. This work has resulted in 7 journal publications.
Flutter susceptibility assessment of airplanes and aero elasticity of insect flapping are two other areas currently being pursued by Dr. Omkar. Work in the area of structural health monitoring, particularly acoustic emission signal classification has resulted in 6 publications (5 journal + 1 book chapter).
Dr. Omkar has pioneered in using biomechanics for aerospace applications. This is of significance in the light of country’s interest in human space mission. He has established a laboratory facility towards this. This work has resulted in 10 journal publications.
Uninhabited Air Vehicles (UAV) is another area with intense focus for Dr. Omkar. He has developed a number of fixed wing models with autonomous capability. He has successfully used them for monitoring the land cover. The vehicles developed by his laboratory will be used for monitoring the flora and fauna of the Kudapura campus of IISc. Dr. Omkar also has plans to use UAVs for weather monitoring and radiation measurement. Dr. Omkar is also working on several other novel concepts in UAV.
Dr. Omkar is also very active in teaching. He has introduced three courses and is involved in teaching many other courses. He has brought in a good change to the core course – Flight Vehicle Design – by making it more practical, where students have to realize a flying vehicle. He has conducted several workshops and delivered a number of invited talks. He is a member of several academic committees.
He has conducted a number of events for educating school and college students.
