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.

We work closely with:
  • Ohio’s two aerospace-related federal research laboratories (Air Force Research Laboratory in Dayton and NASA Glenn Research Center in Cleveland)
  • Numerous aerospace-related companies with operations in Ohio, e.g., GE Aviation, Parker Hannifin, Goodrich, Lockheed, Timken, and others
  • Ohio universities with Ph.D. and research programs in aerospace-related fields, e.g., Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland State University, Air Force Institute of Technology, The Ohio State University, Ohio University, The University of Akron, University of Cincinnati, University of Dayton, The University of Toledo, and Wright State University

We also work with entities outside Ohio, e.g., Boeing, NSF, DARPA, and others to collaborate with our Ohio partners/organizations.
