Expanding Innovation

Research Park adds Advanced Technology and Manufacturing Center

Embry-Riddle’s Research Park will soon gain another 10,000 square feet of production space to advance innovation and entrepreneurship in Central Florida.

Dubbed the Advanced Technology and Manufacturing Center, the new facility will include 5,000 square feet of space for both emerging and established businesses in need of a larger footprint for light assembly and production operations. WeatherFlow-Tempest, Inc., an existing Research Park innovator focused on weather observation, modeling and forecasting technology, was first in line to claim all of the leasable space. The other half of the building will be devoted to Research Park operations.

The Research Park brings business leaders together with Embry-Riddle faculty and students, promotes out-of-the-box thinking and drives technological advancement, says Embry-Riddle President P. Barry Butler. “Our highly collaborative business ecosystem encourages transformative ideas enriched by many different perspectives,” he adds. “By providing an environment where academia, industry and entrepreneurship can share their best ideas, entrepreneurs in Embry-Riddle’s Research Park are translating innovation into new products, services and solutions.”
