Hawaii Center for Advanced Transportation Technologies
Mission Develop and demonstrate technologies for future military and commercial transportation systems.
The Hawaii Center for Advanced Transportation Technologies (HCATT) was first established in 1993 as the Hawaii Electric Vehicle Demonstration Project to represent the Hawaii Consortium in the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency's Electric and Hybrid Vehicle Technology Program. In 1999, it transitioned to the Department of Transportation's Advanced Vehicle Technology Program, and in 2001 it formed a partnership with the Air Force Advanced Power Technology Office (APTO) and established the National Demonstration Center for Alternative Fuel Vehicles at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam in Honolulu.
Managed by HTDC, HCATT has organized public/private partnerships between the federal government and private industry to develop advanced low emission and zero emission vehicles centered on electric drive technologies. Over the years, HCATT has been awarded more than $40 million in federal funds, which was matched by another $23 million from private partners.
