Southwest Research Institute is a premier independent, nonprofit research and development organization using multidisciplinary services to provide solutions to some of the world’s most challenging scientific and engineering problems. Headquartered in San Antonio, Texas, our client-focused, client-funded organization occupies more than 1,500 acres, providing more than 2.3 million square feet of laboratories, test facilities, workshops, and offices for approximately 3,000 employees who perform contract work for government and industry clients.
Boeing is the world's largest aerospace company and leading manufacturer of commercial jetliners, defense, space and security systems, and service provider of aftermarket support. As America’s biggest manufacturing exporter, the company supports airlines and U.S. and allied government customers in more than 150 countries. Boeing products and tailored services include commercial and military aircraft, satellites, weapons, electronic and defense systems, launch systems, advanced information and communication systems, and performance-based logistics and training.
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration is America’s civil space program and the global leader in space exploration. The agency has a diverse workforce of just under 18,000 civil servants, and works with many more U.S. contractors, academia, and international and commercial partners to explore, discover, and expand knowledge for the benefit of humanity. With an annual budget of $23.2 billion in Fiscal Year 2021, which is less than 0.5% of the overall U.S. federal budget, NASA supports more than 312,000 jobs across the United States, generating more than $64.3 billion in total economic output (Fiscal Year 2019).
At its 20 centers and facilities across the country – and the only National Laboratory in space – NASA studies Earth, including its climate, our Sun, and our solar system and beyond. We conduct research, testing, and development to advance aeronautics, including electric propulsion and supersonic flight. We develop and fund space technologies that will enable future exploration and benefit life on Earth.
NASA also leads a Moon to Mars exploration approach, which includes working with U.S. industry, international partners, and academia to develop new technology, and send science research and soon humans to explore the Moon on Artemis missions that will help prepare for human exploration of the Red Planet. In addition to those major missions, the agency shares what it learns so that its information can make life better for people worldwide. For example, companies use NASA discoveries and technologies to create new products for the public. To ensure future success for the agency and the nation, NASA also supports education efforts in STEM with an emphasis on increasing diversity in our future workforce.
MITRE’s mission-driven teams are dedicated to solving problems for a safer world. Through public-private partnerships, as well as the operation of federally funded R&D centers, we work across government to tackle challenges to the safety, stability, and well-being of our nation.
MITRE operates the Center for Advanced Aviation System Development, which has supported the FAA for more than 60 years. In addition, MITRE provides technical expertise to various international civil aviation authorities, airport operators, airlines, and other aviation organizations in air traffic management systems engineering, aviation operations, airspace design, and systems automation and integration.

PRESAGIS is a technology innovator and a leading provider of software development tools for HMI simulation and deployment. We offer intuitive and robust software tools to develop safe and certifiable cockpit graphics for the aerospace, defense, security, and critical infrastructure markets.
Since 1985, PRESAGIS has been supplying first in class cockpit display systems software tools for graphics development, and both ARINC 661 and DO-178 certifiable solutions for 20 years. The company pioneered the prototyping of avionic display graphics and the automatic code generation for embedded systems in the 1990s. Since then, code generated by its flagship HMI modeling and embedded graphics products have been deployed to hundreds of aircraft worldwide and its embedded graphics software has been certified on over 30 major aircraft programs worldwide.
PRESAGIS’ HMI development toolkit provides its customers the tools and services necessary to bring new products to market fast, and with reduced risk. Its latest generation of software tools combine the reliability customers need for mission- and safety-critical graphics development with leading-edge technology developed for modern cockpit graphics. In today’s world, modern cockpit designers and engineers are increasingly adopting the ARINC 661 architecture, and are starting to deploy touch and gesture as the preferred means of human-machine interaction. PRESAGIS technology, developed in conjunction with major aircraft OEMs, provides leading-edge capabilities to enable the development of such products.
PRESAGIS serves hundreds of aviation, space and defense customers worldwide, including many of the world's most respected organizations such as Boeing, Airbus, Airbus Helicopters, Collins Aerospace, Lockheed Martin, BAE Systems, Leonardo, Thales, General Dynamics, and CAE among others.

The Enterprise Full Stack Partner
Full stack can mean different things to a lot of different people — anything from pancakes (our favorite!), to developers, to enterprise tech stacks of all kinds.
For Mark III and how we envision the channel partner of the future, we extend the concept of “full stack” into describing how we’ve organically built our unique organization over the past few years to help enterprises, institutions, and service providers succeed and thrive in the era of digital transformation.
In a world where open source “everything” has enabled virtually thousands more combinations of IT infrastructure and software stacks that can be composed and integrated together to build out key services for your customers and workforce, it’s important not only to understand IT infrastructure technologies and software capabilities, but also how to “glue” them together with great code, automation, and design.
It’s in response to this dynamically shifting need from clients and partners as to why Mark III has evolved our team to a full stack approach to incorporate data scientists, developers, DevOps, and system architects and engineers.
Computing and Cyber Security Department, Texas A&M University – San Antonio.
The mission of the Department of Computing and Cyber Security is to support the development of comprehensive computer science, cyber security and information systems education and research programs. These programs prepare students for careers in cyber security, computing, and information systems. The courses include experiential learning components which allow the students to gain practical hands-on knowledge, skills and experience in the current tools of cyber security and computing.
The university is designated as a NSA Center for Excellence in Cyber Defense Education (CDE). The certificate requirements are built into the curriculum of several degree programs - with the result that graduates of those programs are skilled and trained in current industry requirements of cyber security. The department offers a BS in cyber security, a BBA and BAAS degrees with concentrations in cyber security and an MS in Computer Science with a track in cyber security. Most courses are offered online to allow industry and military students to take courses at their own pace. The department also offers certificates in Data Analytics and Mobile Computing.
The programs and certificates prepares students for careers such as: Information Security Analyst, Penetration Tester, Cyber security Architect, Cyber security Software Developer/Engineer, Risk Assessment Analyst, Cyber Forensics Analyst. Topics of study include the cyber security of networks, storage, software, hardware, firmware, cloud, IoT, embedded systems, mobile systems, cyber physical systems, and others.
We believe aircraft should fly themselves.
Advanced automation will make aircraft safer, more available, more affordable and fundamentally transformative to the way goods and people move around the planet.
Starting with a certification-forward approach, Reliable Robotics first demonstrated gate-to-gate fully automated operation of a Part 23 aircraft and is now working towards commercialization of technologies for Part 23 cargo and Part 25 passenger vehicles.
