SRI International Completes Integration of Sarnoff Corporation

MENLO PARK, Calif.—January 1, 2011—SRI International, an independent nonprofit research and development organization, announced today that it has completed the integration of Sarnoff Corporation, its wholly owned subsidiary in Princeton, New Jersey, into SRI.

“Today, we officially welcome our new colleagues to SRI and celebrate their strong capabilities and heritage of innovation,” said Curtis R. Carlson, Ph.D., president and CEO of SRI International. “Together, we are starting a new year ready to deliver high-value solutions to our government and business clients. Our increased capabilities, especially in vision, video, and semiconductor technologies, offer a broader range of services and more comprehensive solutions to address some of today’s most complex challenges.”

Mark A. Clifton, most recently Sarnoff’s interim president and CEO, is now vice president of the Products and Services Division in SRI’s Engineering and Systems Group.

Sarnoff Corporation has been a wholly owned subsidiary of SRI for more than 20 years. The integration leverages similar business models of client-sponsored R&D plus technology licensing and spin-off ventures. Both organizations work with a broad range of government and business clients, including the Department of Defense and DARPA; National Institutes of Health; National Science Foundation; Departments of Homeland Security, Energy, and Education; the Army; and aerospace and defense industry contractors.
