Communications and Networking

Communication with others is a fundamental need. As technology grows and advances, so do the methods of information exchange. SRI offers cutting-edge solutions to critical needs in communications and networking, relying on substantial expertise in core research, product development, and commercial deployment.

SRI was instrumental in the early development of the Advanced Research Projects Agency Network (ARPANET) in the 1960s, and in 1977, SRI sent the first three-network Internet transmission.

SRI’s interdisciplinary data communication and networking teams integrate new hardware and software technology to provide solutions in these areas and more:

  • Mobile ad hoc networks that allow secure, reliable, and wireless connections

  • Navigation and mapping capabilities, even in urban and subterranean environments that cannot be accessed by Global Positioning Systems 

  • Microminiature device design

  • Information processing and data distribution

  • Network communications management, modeling, and simulation

  • Secure communication networks and scalable network surveillance
