Description

The Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) has been a NASA Field Center since NASA was created in 1958. JPL, an operating division of the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), performs research, development and related activities for NASA. The people of JPL share a common objective: research and development in the national interest.

Mission

Three characteristics shape JPL's philosophy, mission and goals: As part of Caltech, JPL pursues the highest standards of scientific and engineering achievement. Excellence, objectivity and integrity are the guiding principles. As NASA's lead center for unmanned exploration of the solar system, JPL directs unmanned planetary missions for the United States. JPL helps the United States solve technological problems and performs research, development and spaceflight activities for NASA and other agencies.

Programs

The Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research,or EPSCoR,establishes partnerships with government, higher education and industry that are designed to effect lasting improvements in a state's or region's research infrastructure, R&D capacity and hence, its national R&D competitiveness.

The EPSCoR program is directed at those jurisdictions that have not in the past participated equably in competitive aerospace and aerospace-related research activities. Twenty-four states, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and Guam currently participate.Fivefederal agencies conduct EPSCoR programs, including NASA.

The goal of EPSCoR is to provide seed funding that will enable jurisdictions to develop an academic research enterprise directed toward long-term, self-sustaining, nationally-competitive capabilities in aerospace and aerospace-related research.
