BROWNSVILLE - The South Texas Spacecraft Tracking and Astronomical Research into Giga-hertz astrophysical Transient Emission (STARGATE) will be the first research Center of Excellence for the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley.

The project is a cooperative effort with SpaceX to develop and support commercialization of phase-array technology for satellite and space vehicle communication.

The U.S. Economic Development Administration will award a $1.2 million grant for construction tied to STARGATE.

The grant will be used to fund a business incubator for radio frequency laboratories, classrooms, incubator offices, warehouse space and outdoor radio systems at the STARGATE Technology Park located at the SpaceX Commercial Launch Facility at Boca Chica Beach in Cameron County.
