JCATI Overview

Unmanned aerial systems (UAS) or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) are an exciting technology receiving much attention. While military or law enforcement applications of these unmanned vehicles receive much of the focus, there are many private sector and commercial applications for these vehicles. This short video introduces the UAS/UAV and their private/commercial applications and benefits.
Aerospace is a growing industry. Washington State is a leader driving innovation in this sector. Aerospace leaders discuss the future of the industry in this short video.
This short video introduces the JCATI which was established in 2012 to support the aerospace industry in Washington State by pursuing joint industry-university research, and providing aerospace industry-focused research opportunities for engineering and computer science students.
JCATI is supporting public-private partnerships which utilize the research strengths of universities within the state of Washington and advance innovation within the aerospace industry. Learn more about this collaborative model.
Bobak Ferdowsi (Mars Science Laboratory Curiosity Project Flight Engineer, Jet Propulsion Laboratory / NASA) briefly discusses his education at the University of Washington and MIT and how he became an engineer at JPL.
