Center For Intelligent Propulsion and Advanced Life Management
The Ohio Center for Intelligent Propulsion and Advanced Life Management (CIPALM) was established in 2008 through a $27.5M Ohio Research Scholar Award from the Ohio Department of Development. The goal of the University of Cincinnati led center is to ensure Ohio’s continued eminence in power and propulsion research. The cluster supports the development of future intelligent adaptive power and propulsion systems with advanced energy sources for low emission, and superior reliability through service life and thermal management.
Built on Ohio’s current strengths, CIPALM’s mission is:
- to develop innovative, breakthrough technologies to provide the next generation of aircraft power and propulsion systems, alternative fuel synthesis, life management of advanced composite materials and intelligent thermal management technologies.
- to ensure continued international prominence in these areas through robust academic, business, and government collaborations.
The center's research scholars at the University of Cincinnati, University of Dayton Research Institute and Ohio State University possess the expertise to meet future challenges of the global aeronautics market through improved fuel efficiency and life cycle performance, while minimizing evironmental impact and consumer cost.
