Institute for Advanced
Aerospace Technologies

A California Consortium of
Universities, Industry and




Institute for Advanced


Focused, aerospace
related research by a consortium composed of
government, industry, and universities.

Facilitate critical research and/or technology development of interest to
industry and government agencies

Environment compliant with proprietary, ITAR and/or DoD classification.

Capabilities to perform experimental testing, theory, and simulations of
emerging technologies and concepts.

Develop research that requires intellectual property protection.

Leverage potential commercialization opportunities.

Offer education opportunities across multidiscipline aerospace

Industry and University research participation via internships and/or
research assistantships.

Specialized/focused subject courses for industry and government

Provide short term research opportunities at the Institute for the
Government, Industry, and University community.

Promote aerospace science and engineering, provide public outreach,
and stimulate public awareness of the value of the field.

Research and Development in Critical
Technologies Supporting Customer Capability

We consider developing an Institute focused on the
research and development of critical technologies with
extended maturation timelines.

Institute’s Benefits


lead for Consortium


located (El Segundo/LAAFB)

To provide

a mechanism to perform
research within an ITAR environment.

To provide

with superior and leveraged
capabilities to perform research and
development of critical technologies.

Research training of students in areas where industry
has future employment needs

To continue the

in maintaining its
preeminence in aerospace technology.

Issues for this meeting

What critical technologies are you planning to
invest in over the next decade that could be
enhanced by

in this Institute?

Leverage IR&D Dollars with

Joint Government Grants

Transition of University Research

Investment by the State of California(?)

What mechanisms should be incorporated into the
Institute that would benefit your organization?

personnel, and/or classification restrictions

Project is initiated at UCLA, IAAT, or designated locale;

interactions with and progress reports to

industry personnel take place as required or needed

Final product delivered to member company (report, presentation, thesis)

Member company or university identifies BAA or RFP and potential project

From list of faculty experts, contacts established to discuss

collaboration and prepare proposal

Proposal is submitted, consistent with required proprietary, ITAR,

personnel, and/or other restrictions

If funded, project commences at the company, UCLA, IAAT, or designated locale;

interactions with and progress reports to

relevant parties take place as required or needed
