Parallax is engaged in key areas of aerospace and space research, development, test and evaluation, public-private partnerships, and policy development. Our experts are engaged with others to define the necessary functional requirements for an open-standard approach to connecting current and future lower altitude surveillance systems for advanced air mobility platforms. Our team of cross-disciplinary partners will consider how data can be utilized for safety cases, operational planning, and various other scenarios. We are a thought leader in industry standards, existing state-of-the-art in surveillance sensors, and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) engagement.
Our research and leadership in space research is through a partnership with the Ohio Aerospace Institute (OAI). Founded in 1989, OAI is a joint initiative of the NASA Glenn Research Center, the Air Force Research Laboratory at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, the State of Ohio, ten Ohio public and private universities granting doctoral degrees in aerospace-related engineering disciplines, and numerous companies engaged in aerospace activities. Their research includes:
Advanced Aerospace Materials
Space Science and Exploration Technology
Mechanical Characterization and Modelling
Aerospace Systems Sensing, Characterization & Safety
Additive Manufacturing of Ceramics
OAI is also a leader in biomimicry, which accelerates innovation based on bio-inspired solutions already tried and tested in nature. They also lead the Ohio Aerospace Industry Association, further connecting businesses, government, and academia to streamline and improve supply chain management.
