When thirsty residents of a permanent community on the Moon take a swig of fresh water brought in from the lunar south pole, they’ll be enjoying the benefits of a 30-pound spacecraft known as the Lunar Flashlight that was assembled and tested at the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech).
A new optical tracking technology that uses a LIDAR system to track small, airborne targets in cluttered environments. The technology offers an alternative to fire control radar (FCR) that are susceptible to advanced countermeasures, and could enable a low-cost RF silent intercept solution to protect warfighters from current and emerging threats.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques, Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations and data analytics procedures are being used jointly to help improve the availability of a critical U.S. Air Force helicopter while reducing maintenance costs and extending how long the aircraft can remain in service.
Phenomena that generate a type of low-frequency sound known as infrasound could become easier to detect and measure thanks to a new technique under development at the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI).
Researchers have developed a new general-purpose, high-performance monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC) for the direct filtering and processing of radio frequency (RF) signals in the microwave and millimeter-wave spectrum.
GTRI is developing a robot that utilizes deep learning to automate certain aspects of the peach cultivation process, which could be a boon for many Georgia peach farms grappling with a shortage of workers.

Researchers have made significant advances toward the goal of a new microchip able to grow DNA strands that could provide high-density 3D archival data storage at ultra-low cost – and be able to hold that information for hundreds of years.
Vertically Integrated Projects (VIP) Program – an education program supported by Georgia Tech and the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) that allows undergraduate and graduate students to earn academic credit for working with faculty on projects they don't typically encounter in a classroom setting.
Tests to detect SARS-CoV-2 infection in humans have become more widely available as the Covid-19 pandemic approaches the end of its second year. But rapidly monitoring for and detecting infectious virus aerosols within indoor environments is currently not possible.
Our 10 year strategic plan embraces, builds on, and enhances our success and culture by articulating goals and identifying intentional actions toward achieving our 2030 vision where our people are the foremost innovators creating a secure nation, a prosperous Georgia, and a sustainable world.
Craig Raslawski uses hackathons like capture-the-flag events (CTFs) to hone his cyber skills. In 2019, he participated in the multi-phase SANS Institute Cyber FastTrack competition and was one of 100 participants who won a scholarship for the SANS Technology Institute’s Applied Cybersecurity Certificate program, which he completed in December 2020.
Like many students preparing to graduate, Michael Grady, an electrical engineering doctoral student at the time at the University of South Florida (USF), had a list of companies he wanted to work for one day. Four years later, and now a patent holder, Michael Grady, Ph.D., finds himself at the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI), innovating creative solutions to complex problems.
Equipped with the knowledge of how powerful encouragement can be, Sharaé Meredith, GTRI senior research engineer, strives to uplift others.
The smartphones carried in so many pockets and purses could play a key role in keeping COVID-19 under control as the nation cautiously reopens the economy.
GTRI is working to design and build effective PPE that could also be mass-produced in an effort to address the PPE shortage.
GTRI Interns Create Portable, Modular Medical Imaging Devices for Remote Places
Shannon Yee is leading a $13.5 million effort funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to reinvent the toilet, technology that hasn’t changed much in more than a century.
Peanut growers could someday identify emerging threats such as drought, pests or disease by testing a plant’s “chemical breath.”
At an Air National Guard base 60 miles north of Kansas City, a team of experts from GTRI provides the highest level of training in defensive maneuvers, countermeasures, and tactics for members of the mobility air force with the ultimate goal of keeping them safe while flying through potentially hostile skies.
Educators serve a critical role around the globe – shaping the minds of generations and impacting the lives of future leaders and change agents. It’s a responsibility that we hold high at Georgia Tech and within GTRI.
Since GTRI’s doors opened in 1934, women have successfully integrated their expertise across the organization, bringing a diverse and inclusive perspective to the forefront of research and technology.
Georgia Tech alumna Michelle Gowdy shares her career journey at GTRI.
STEM@GTRI invited 59 students from across the state of Georgia to intern with six GTRI laboratories and the Warner Robins field office.
John Trostel, Madeline Frank, Jessica Losego, and Tom Perry of the Severe Storms Research Center, work to Improve tornado warning time.
A new mobile autonomous robot could perform daily monitoring tasks while safely interacting with chickens in commercial chicken houses, according to researchers at the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI).
