Oklahoma Transportation Center (OTC) | Posted 08/17/2010

The Oklahoma Transportation Center, one of 10 National University Transportation Centers under the U.S. Department of Transportation‘s Research and Innovative Technology Administration (RITA), has established its office at Tinker Business & Industrial Park, OTC Director Tony Dark has announced.

DOT invests in the future of transportation through its University Transportation Centers Program, which awards grants to universities across the United States to advance the state-of-the-art in transportation research and develop the next generation of transportation professionals, Dark explained.

“The Oklahoma Transportation Center expects to marshal the talents and resources of the participating universities (OSU, OU, and LU) as well as Oklahoma-based private industry, governments and transportation professionals to provide world-class solutions to challenges in building, designing and maintaining transportation systems,” he said.

OTC facilitates several programs of basic and applied research. In addition to creating new knowledge and finding practical solutions to real-world problems, faculty and students are engaged in the transfer of technology to support government agencies, industry and other entities involved in the transportation enterprises, including aerospace-related transportation.

“The OTC is an excellent example of how university faculty and students can play a significant role in the development of real-world solutions to issues that impact major industries in our state,” Warren Thomas, TBIP Managing General Partner, observed. “We believe that the co-location of private sector, public sector and academic entities – focused together on solutions – is key to successful outcomes, and are delighted that the OTC has chosen TBIP.”
