Collaborators and Supporters


Boeing Logo

B-1B Program
Collaboration with members of the Boeing B-1B team resulted in the creation of an interactive mockup of a weapons display for the B-1B aircraft.
Boeing University Relations Program
Boeing works with selected colleges and universities to enhance undergraduate curricula support, provide continuing education for Boeing employees, to collaborate on research, and recruit outstanding candidates for employment.
A Higher Education Integration Board combines the business and technical communities at Boeing, which supports college and university partners, while fostering relationships with faculty at to further deepen those relationships.
Phantom Works Program
Boeing Defense, Space & Security's Phantom Works group is an integrated team that works with the three BDS Businesses to help develop advanced concepts and technologies to respond to evolving needs of customers and potential new markets.
The unit includes advanced programs, pursues new business and executes new programs prior to reaching the System Design and Development phase.
In close collaboration with Boeing Research & Technology, Phantom Works develops and transitions advanced programs into the IDS business areas and ultimately to BDS' defense and space customers.
Vehicles (UAVs)/Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs)

Center for Usability in Design and Accessibility (CUDA)

  • An official research and testing center on the campus of CSU, Long Beach that provides usability and accessibility evaluation services of technology tools and products.
  • Collaborates with CHAAT to provide students with training on user-centered interface design, which can be applied to the evaluation of NextGen interfaces and tools designed by students trained in CATSAI.

Center of Aerospace Technology in Support of the Aerospace Industry (CATSAI)

Students trained in CATSAI will learn how to design and produce tools to support aerospace technologies.

Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)


FAA Civil Aerospace Medical Institute
The Office of Aerospace Medicine is responsible for medical programs and services for both domestic and international aviation communities.
Their vision is to provide global leadership for Aerospace Medicine in the 21st century.
Their goal is aerospace safety through medical excellence, commitment, and teamwork.

National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)


Army/NASA Rotocraft
Branch programs address all aspects of the rotorcraft which influences the vehicle's performance, structure, dynamic response, external acoustics, vibration, and aeroelastic stability.
NASA Ames Research Center
Works collaboratively with the FAA conducting research in air traffic management to make safer, less expensive and more efficient air travel a reality.
Engages in information and education outreach, forms collaborative partnerships, and fosters commercial application of NASA technologies.
Ames is developing NASA Research Park, an integrated, dynamic research and education community created to cultivate diverse partnerships with academia, industry and non-profit organizations in support of NASA's mission.
Air Operations Lab (AOL)
The mission of the Airspace Operations Laboratory (AOL) is to provide a better understanding of roles, responsibilities, and requirements for human operators and automation in future air traffic management (ATM) systems.
AOL focuses on developing and evaluating operational concepts and technologies for the Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen) in a high-fidelity human-in-the-loop (HITL) environment.
Control TRACON Automation System (CTAS)
The Center TRACON Automation System (CTAS) provides automation tools for planning and controlling arrival air traffic.
CTAS is designed to increase fuel efficiency, reduce delays, and provide automation assistance to air traffic controllers in achieving acceptable aircraft sequencing, separation, and improved airport capacity.
Accomplished without decreasing safety or increasing controller workload.
Flight Deck Display Research Lab (FDDRL)
FDDRL collaborates with CHAAT, serving the aviation community through world-class research
Works to increase the capabilities of the flightdeck crew by expanding their roles and responsibilities
Uses new tools and concepts, to increase airspace capacity and safety.
Langley Research Center
NASA's Langley Research Center was the initial home of the first astronauts, the Mercury 7. Its reputation for exceptional research started soon after Langley was established as the United States' first civilian aeronautics laboratory in 1917. Now the Center is working to design and test a new launch abort system for the next generation space capsules.
The Langley is known for solving tough problems in air, space and earth science.
Researchers at Langley are focusing on some of the biggest technical challenges of our time: global climate change, access to space and revolutionizing airplanes and the air transportation system.
