德 is dedicated to providing applied research solutions to the challenges facing our nation’s aerospace, aviation, and related industries. While rooted in aviation, research at our Daytona Beach Campus has expanded to include a diverse range of areas, including engineering, cyber and homeland security, 人为因素, modeling and simulation, 和业务.
The same technologies and expertise our faculty have developed and applied to aerospace and aviation related research, we now apply directly to other areas — space systems, high-performance vehicles, unmanned and autonomous systems, 机器人, alternative and sustainable energy, medical 人为因素, commercial space operations, 和更多的.
We are constantly expanding our partnerships with industry much of this development is taking place at The John Mica Engineering and Aerospace Innovation Complex at 德 研究 Park, which is adjacent to the ERAU campus. Supported by our new generation of research centers and laboratories, the MicaPlex not only fosters research growth on campus, but also provides an ideal setting for cross-fertilization and innovation between the campus and our industry partners.
In addition to this research park, 德 manages the FAA NextGen Florida Test Bed, where technology is being developed that will support the nation’s expanding air transportation needs into the rest of this century. 研究 at the Test Bed will contribute to reducing fuel consumption and associated emissions, improving situational awareness for pilots, and providing safer 和更多的 efficient passenger service.
As our campus continues to grow, research by our nationally respected faculty — in partnership with industry — will expand the boundaries of current technologies and add to the body of our disciplinary knowledge to enable us to continue focusing on solving tomorrow’s challenges today.
