We host the Academic Center for Aging Aircraft whose expertise encompasses corrosion prevention, erosion modeling with resistant coatings, vibration mitigation, NDI/NDT damage assessment, and systems integration. We engage researchers from Texas A&M Engineering to solve complex problems in aviation and automotive industries.
Our team applies state-of-the-art technology to enhance the cost effectiveness, life-cycle performance, and livability of facilities and infrastructure by engineering research in building performance (commissioning/assessments), distributed energy generation, energy efficiency, smart grid and technology testing and evaluation.
Our environmental staff possesses extensive experience in environmental sustainability to include the related areas of natural resources, technology transfer, medicine, engineering, and mathematics. Our program focuses on environmental program management support; technical analysis, review and oversight; and delivery of technical services that include sustainable planning, implementation of technology, environmental compliance, conformance with EMS (ISO 14001, 18001, and 9001), air and water quality, hazardous waste, forestry and pest management.
TCAT maintains a group of highly skilled researchers and developers in high payoff areas of computing and information technology such as computer science, data visualization, software design engineering, and operations research/systems analysis.
Our research engineers apply their knowledge of manufacturing processes and machines and their control, knowledge of the essentials of manufacturing systems design and analysis, and knowledge and “hands-on” experience with modern and emerging manufacturing technologies to produce return on investment for both industry and government installations.
TCAT furthers the development and applications of modeling, simulation, and visualization as enterprise decision-making tools to support training, exercises, emergency operations and command and control functions for industry and state, local, federal agencies.
TCAT rapidly develops and transitions new technology by utilizing technical expertise and innovation from Texas A&M Engineering, Universities, and small business to preserve the capability of a system over its life cycle by applying technology to improve maintainability and reliability of systems. Many of our successes have increased efficiency, productivity, and provide environmental alternatives to critical processes.
TCAT tests and evaluates capabilities in an operationally realistic environment to provide unbiased data concerning operational effectiveness and suitability.
