Facilitate Technology and Product Developments in Support of UTSI and AEDC and Other Regional and National Clients

The Space Institute  Research Corporation is a 501 (c) 3 corporation  located at the University of Tennessee Space Institute. Our goal is to facilitate opportunities for accelerating UTSI/UT generated technologies, applications development and their commercialization.

SIRC operates as an autonomous organization, with its own board of directors. Under the overall control of the University of Tennessee Research Foundation (UTRF).  This mode of operation and relationship guarantees SIRC’s small business status. As an autonomous organization SIRC is able to respond to business opportunities in a timely manner.

The Corporation focuses on technology development and engineering and scientific support for the purposes of complementing the UTSI educational and research capabilities and technology transfer and economic development.  It participates in projects to further develop research and increase technology readiness level (TRL)  into applications for  commercially viable processes.
