The Joint Center for Aerospace Technology Innovation (JCATI), enacted by RCW 28B.155.010, was established in 2012 by the governor and legislature to support the aerospace industry in Washington State by:
• pursuing joint industry-university research in new technologies that are relevant to aerospace firms;
• providing aerospace industry-focused research opportunities for engineering and computer science students at the University of Washington, Washington State University, and Washington’s other public four-year institutions of higher education, through assisting the development of internship programs and undergraduate and graduate student research opportunities that give students hands-on experience with aerospace firms;
• and in concert with aerospace firms and aerospace industry associations, identifying research needs and opportunities for technology transfer that benefit the State’s aerospace industry.
