The Propulsion and Space Research Center (PSRC) drives global research and educational empowerment in Propulsion and Beyond Earth Exploration. Through our partnerships with leading global institutions, our research areas include aerodynamics, aircraft propulsion and turbomachinery, space exploration, with a transversal focus on artificial intelligence, disruptive propulsion designs and sustainability.
PSRC is part of the Technology Innovation Institute (TII), a global scientific research center attracting the world’s foremost scientists and researchers. TII leads worldwide advances in artificial intelligence, autonomous robotics, quantum computing, cryptography and quantum communications, directed energy, secure communication, smart devices, advanced materials, and propulsion and space technologies, and biotechnology fields.
TII belongs to the Abu Dhabi Government’s Advanced Technology Research Council (ATRC), which oversees the technology research.
We leverage cutting-edge technologies to enable aircrafts and spacecrafts to go faster and further than before, as well as improve their fuel efficiency and carbon emissions. We also enable aerial vehicles to improve performance while mitigating their environmental impact.
In addition, we develop disruptive technologies including new propulsion architectures, hybrid/electric propulsion, novel computational methods, and sustainable aviation fuels to achieve future environmental targets.
