Can JIRA set one project with two categories?

Category is a very nice way to distinguish projects. We want to set one project with two categories so that we can make it more easy to search. For example, Project in category "Navigation Project" and "Android Platform". Can JIRA do that? Thanks!

No, a project can only belong to one category.

Thanks for your help, is there any way to distinguish two kinds of projects? Just like the lables to the issues.

Use indicative names, and/or set up your categories in a structured way. For extra project level fields, have a look at the "Profields" addon.
