L-3 Platform Integration to become BRIC’s first industrial tenant

The Office of the Vice Provost for Research is proud to welcome L-3 Platform Integration as the first industrial partner to lease space in the Baylor Research and Innovation Collaborative (BRIC) discovery park. L-3 Platform Integration has signed a lease to occupy 3,200 square feet of space, which they’ll staff with engineers who are already collaborating with Baylor faculty on advanced research.

L-3 sponsors two research projects in collaboration with Baylor’s School of Engineering and Computer Science. The first project, which has been ongoing for more than two years, involves developing processes for testing and analyzing advanced composite materials for use in aerospace applications. The second project is focused on advanced technologies for aircraft communication systems.
