The John Mica Engineering and Aerospace Innovation Complex (MicaPlex) centralizes specialty labs and business incubator services at the Embry-Riddle Research Park in Florida. Faculty, industry partners and 17 disruptive enterprises are advancing long-range, remotely piloted aerial systems, lightweight battery technology for aerial platforms, smart sensors for turbine engine diagnostics and a space tug. The U.S. Navy is using our high- fidelity, large-scale, fully instrumented subsonic wind tunnel to assess risks caused by airwake when helicopters land on ships. Our Next Generation (NextGen) FAA Testbed is improving the safety and efficiency of National Airspace System management, including air traffic control upgrades. Our Next-Generation ERAU Advanced Research (NEAR) Lab provides consulting services, including simulations and data analysis, to the private sector and the Federal Aviation Administration. The Eagle Flight Research Center (EFRC) is developing hybrid turbine/ electric aircraft, including electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) designs and power systems for urban air mobility vehicles. EFRC propulsion technology has earned two U.S. patents and patents from Great Britain, Germany and France. Patents are pending in Brazil and Canada. The Robertson Safety Institute includes an aviation center, archives, an aircraft investigation lab and labs dedicated to materials testing, ergonomics and industrial hygiene.

Seed funding secured by entrepreneurs in our research park $ 10 MIL
