Miguel Montalvo and Nicolas (Nico) McMahon, student researchers from the National Radio Astronomy Observatory’s National Astronomy Consortium (NAC) program, were each awarded the prestigious Chambliss Astronomy Achievement Student Awards medal for exemplary research in astrophysics.
We Make Scientific Breakthroughs Possible
The Infrastructure of Discovery Doesn’t Happen Overnight — We Can Help
We transform ideas into technologies, laboratories and policies that initiate, inform and inspire. For over seven decades, AUI has developed specialized expertise in science, engineering, technology and cyber security to enable greater impact. Uniquely positioned, we combine exceptional operations management with collaborative community engagement, drive innovation and affect lasting change within organizations.
Experts at Managing Complexity
We create an environment where innovation, imagination and people thrive. Even in the harshest desert terrain, discovery flourishes at ALMA, where AUI has led an international partnership with Europe, Canada, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and Chile. The $1.4 billion project is a monumental achievement for space exploration and collaborations.
A new instrument concept from the National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO) called the next generation RADAR (ngRADAR) system will use the National Science Foundation’s Green Bank Telescope (GBT) and other current and future facilities to support planetary defense efforts.
Students from San Pedro de Atacama Travel to Santiago and Concepción to Make Their STEM Vocations a Reality
Iris González and Camila Pérez have lived their entire lives in San Pedro de Atacama. Living in a town so close to the ALMA Observatory, they experienced science up close in a privileged natural setting, to today become the first university students in their families.
