The Ohio Aerospace Institute (OAI) was founded 25 years ago as the first NASA-associated institute chartered to foster collaboration between universities, industry and government laboratories. Over the years, we have evolved from our roots as a small, largely state-funded enterprise outside the gates of the NASA Glenn Research Center, into a diverse research, education and collaboration aerospace institute with important customer-funded operations in Cleveland and Dayton.
OAI’s Mission Our mission is to enhance our partners’ aerospace competitiveness through research and technology development, workforce preparedness, and engagement with global networks for innovation and advocacy.
