Research Expertise

Since 1989, Ohio Aerospace Institute (OAI) researchers have advanced human knowledge and contributed to the missions of our customers. This has brought researchers to OAI from across the globe, often working on-site in close collaboration with their sponsoring organizations as fully integrated members of customer R&D teams. OAI’s community of researchers has continued to expand to currently involve OAI personnel working in close collaboration with their research sponsors at the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) in Dayton, Ohio, the NASA Glenn Research Center in Cleveland, Ohio and with a variety of industry clients.


OAI researchers have achieved a track record of significant success and recognition including patented technologies, books and book chapters, hundreds of publications, numerous customer commendations and even “R&D 100” awards.
