OTHER EMBRY-RIDDLE RESEARCH CENTERS AND INSTITUTES INCLUDE:

Alliance for Systems Safety of UAS through Research Excellence (ASSURE) Embry-Riddle is a founding member of the multi-university ASSURE Coalition, comprised of 21 research universities. ASSURE was designated as the FAA’s Center of Excellence for Unmanned Center for Space and Atmospheric Research (CSAR) CSAR investigates planetary atmo- spheres and near-space environments to understand the neutral and ionized atmosphere as well as the space plasma environment and space weather. The research leverages both state-of-the-art modeling and advanced instrumentation, such as a high-resolution sodium LIDAR. k Visit csar.erau.edu. Eagle Flight Research Center (EFRC) The EFRC is helping to shape the future of human mobility, including clean, quiet flight, through research focused on propulsion, unmanned autonomous vehicles, manned flight control and the certification of new technologies. This consortium of 25 universities and nearly 40 industry partners is helping the FAA revolutionize technical training practices and human performance for its workforce. The center is led by Embry- Riddle and the University of Oklahoma. Center for Wildlife and Aviation This center collects, maintains and dis- seminates relevant bird strike data and bird strike research; promotes wildlife mitigation training, policies and plans; and bridges the gap between the sci- entific community and stakeholders. k Visit wildlifecenter.pr.erau.edu.

Cybersecurity and Assured Systems Engineering Center (CyBASE) CyBASE leverages academic, industry and government expertise to provide cybersecurity solutions for aerospace, aviation and other enterprises. It investigates high-assurance systems in aviation and aerospace with an empha- sis on cybersecurity. k Read about a cybersecurity camp on Page 7. NextGen is an FAA initiative in which government, industry and academia work to modernize the nation’s national airspace, shifting from ground-based radar to satellite-based technology. The FAA has contracted Embry-Riddle to conduct national and international air- space research and operate its Florida NextGen Test Bed facility. k See Page 3. Next Generation Air Transportation Safety (NextGen) Facility Robertson Safety Institute As a professional development, outreach and consulting organization, the Robertson Safety Institute offers opportunities for advanced profes- sional training, consulting on safety projects with corporate partners and

A spiring business leaders received inspiration and mentoring at a recent The Bootcamp is one of many ways the center marries technological knowledge in aeronautics, aerospace, engineering and computer science with business ingenuity to help entrepreneurs launch high-value, high-growth companies. In partnership with the university’s Technology Transfer and Commercialization office, as well as the Embry-Riddle Research Park, the center helps entrepreneurs build businesses. At a recent Launch Your Venture competition, student inventors described an innovative knee brace, a wearable fitness sensor, technology to save lives at sea and a “gas station in space.” k Read about the game-changing knee brace on Page 5.
