Cooperative Research Partnership with NASA Dryden Flight Research Center (DFRC)

NASA Dryden Flight Research Center (DFRC) and the California Space Grant have jointly executed a Space Act Agreement involving Student/Mentor Design and Research and Operations Projects. This DFRC/Space Grant "Space Act" Program is intended to provide a significant positive impact on the following areas:

  • Quality of science and technical education and a well-trained workforce;
  • Relevance of Space Grant programs to DFRC’s mission; and
  • Number of under-represented students electing to pursue graduate study and research careers in science, technology, and mathematics.

This Agreement enables the CaSGC to extend its research and workforce efforts through involvement with the following NASA DFRC task areas:

  • Aeronautical flight research in support of global civil aviation, development and operations of the Space Shuttle and future access-to-space vehicles,
  • Airborne science mission and flight operations, and piloted and uninhabited aircraft testbeds for research and science missions.
