Comsat Architects, awarded research funds by the Ohio Federal Research Network (OFRN), will further the area of advanced communication technologies. Comsat Architects joins a consortium produced by this funding that includes Wright State University, Ohio University, University of Toledo, the Air Force Institute of Technology, and Gird Systems, Inc. Comsat Architects’ primary role is to develop an intelligent space communication network for Federal agencies. This network will enable an autonomous and secure network, providing increased capacity on existing infrastructure using artificial intelligence to optimize data traffic flow. “This project continues Comsat Architects’ goal of training young professionals in high-tech jobs within Ohio,” noted Kul Bhasin, PhD, founder of Comsat Architects. The consortium has been awarded $800,000 in research funds to perform this work and is expecting to create 120 Ohio jobs over a five-year period.

Comsat Architects, located in Rocky River, Ohio, is a technology company providing services in the development of future space communication systems. Established in 2014, Comsat Architects has extensive experience with NASA, and private industry, space and satellite systems. NASA Glenn Research Center, a client, is one of the federal research agencies in Ohio to benefit from this consortium. Through the company’s dedication to providing quality-driven services, Comsat Architects is creating a positive impact on space communication technology in Northeast Ohio.

Established by the Ohio Federal Military Jobs Commission in 2015, the OFRN has already awarded $15.6 million dollars to 18 projects and is expecting to create 2,500 new jobs and $350 million dollars in private sector investments. By strategically capitalizing on Ohio’s existing research facilities and commercial sectors in national defense, space exploration, and aeronautics, the OFRN strives to expand and strengthen the state’s research and commercialization opportunities in technology development. One of OFRN’s primary goals is to form collaborative research initiatives within the University system by utilizing research opportunities from Ohio’s four federal research laboratories—the Air Force Research Laboratory, NASA Glenn Research Center, the National Air and Space Intelligence Center, and the Naval Medical Research Unit at Dayton. By doing so, the OFRN plans to grow Ohio’s research talent base, attract outside public and private investment, and retain and create new jobs in Ohio.
