About the Russ Research Center

Founded by Fritz J. and Dolores H. Russ, namesakes of the Russ College of Engineering and Technology at Ohio University, the Russ Research Center is a 75-acre high-tech research park in Dayton, Ohio, that is home to some of the area’s leading defense, engineering, and technology firms. The campus grew out of the­­ Russes’­ own company, Systems Research Laboratory (SRL), which they established on the Russ Research Center site in 1955. After pouring the footers for the building's foundation themselves, they developed SRL into one of the nation's leading electronic and automation corporations. The Russes established a legacy of entrepreneurial and technological excellence, and our business campus holds true to that legacy, hosting tenants in a range of industries from aerospace to life sciences.
