Aerospace and Defense Research Collaboratory

The Aerospace and Defense Research Collaboratory (ADRC) is a framework for collaboration with organizations across the state and throughout the aerospace and defense industry supply chain. With the support of the Arizona Science Foundation and corporate partners, the ADRC was established as a broad coalition of academic and industry partners to develop and advance technologies used in commercial and military applications.

Examples of projects under the ADRC include fixed wing and unmanned system training or control simulations; flight vehicle and engine design, characterization and optimization; decision support and information management systems; emergency management training and simulation; sensor design and characterization; and visual analytics for data synthesis.
