the sacri vision

To Build a Globally-Recognized Research Institute that will Conduct Leading Edge Research in the Areas of Space Applications, Wireless Systems, and Networking. The special emphasis will be in Satellite Communications with regard to advanced technology, next generation systems, air and transportation safety, disaster recovery and anti-terrorism applications.

  • SACRI integrates the GW Netlab and the GW Institute for Applied Space Research (IASR) into a single research entity
  • SACRI draws on GW core faculty, graduate students, industry advisory board, CIT Support, access to the Telecom City University Research Consortium (with the ability to partner with MIT, Harvard, Tufts, BU, etc.) and existing R&D contracts all help to create a viable base from which to launch SACRI
