Italian Aerospace Research Centre



CIRA, the Italian Aerospace Research Centre, is a company mainly of public ownership created in 1984 for the purpose of performing research in the fields of space and aeronautics.

The Centre, with headquarters and operational structures in Capua, Campania, was founded by the Italian State with the aim of promoting research and technological development in the fields of space and aeronautics matching that of other European countries, and enabling Italian enterprises to compete at high levels on the international markets.

The Italian Space Agency (reference shareholder), the National Research Council, the Region of Campania (through Area Sviluppo Industriale of Caserta), and industries and SMEs of the aerospace sector who play a part in the company, all ensure that CIRA’s goals remain consistent with the strategic national guidelines and the needs of companies, thereby contributing to the economic development of the country.
