A research engineer at SRI’s Center for Geospace Studies says it’s essential to engage with researchers from other disciplines.
Ocean and space
Engineers look to river and ocean currents for clean energy
Scientific American spotlights DOE-funded projects like SRI’s Manta kite, which are designed to harness the power of moving water
Shedding light on the inner workings of the Sun
SRI International researchers developed Active Pixel CMOS detectors for the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory’s Wide-Field Imager for Solar Probe (WISPR). This is the only imaging instrument aboard the Parker Solar Probe.
Making space research accessible to students, researchers and commercial entities
Researchers at SRI International worked alongside other experts to create CubeSat technology.
Making the business revolution in low earth orbit sustainable
By combining AMISR technology with a cloud-based SaaS platform, radar data was converted into actionable information that could be used to prevent orbital collisions.

Tidal power system will use an underwater kite to generate electricity
SRI has stated that it now plans on building and operating a prototype to demonstrate the Manta technology…
Underwater manta kites for tidal power harvesting
Waves, tides, and currents are all potential power sources, some of which we’ve begun to leverage, but not in a way that can fill the same sorts of niches that solar and wind can—small scale, versatile, and affordable.
This underwater kite generates electricity using water currents
Called Manta, the system was developed by scientists at the California-based SRI International research institute, who recently were awarded a US $4.2 million grant to develop the technology in collaboration with colleagues at the University of California, Berkeley.
