The Propulsion and Space Research Center (PSRC) was established to contribute to National research and educational advancement in the area of Propulsion and Beyond Earth Exploration. PSRC will embrace advances in technology in an effort to enable aircrafts and spacecrafts to go faster and further than before, as well as improve their fuel efficiency and carbon emissions. This cutting-edge strategy aims to cement the Emirates' growing status as a leading player in the aerospace sector.
PSRC is taking an academic and discipline-based approach to the advancing the nations capabilities in the field. Developed in-house and in partnership with leading global institutions, our research focuses on aerodynamics, aircraft propulsion and turbomachinery, space exploration, with a transversal focus on artificial intelligence, disruptive propulsion designs and sustainability.
With sustainable transportation and space exploration becoming key national priorities for the UAE, the Propulsion and Space Research Center is engaged in technologies that enable aerial vehicles to improve performance while mitigating their environmental impact. At the same time, researching disruptive technologies including new propulsion architectures, hybrid/electric propulsion, novel computational methods, sustainable aviation fuels, to achieve future environmental targets.
