International terrorism threatens the U.S., its allies and interests, and the world community. Defeating the terrorist enemy requires technologies that can deter and counteract potential attacks.

SRI provides government and civilian agencies with advanced technologies, facilities, and programs to increase physical and cyber security. Solutions include

  • Remote test site for developing methods to neutralize improvised explosive devices (IEDs) and other terrorist threats.

  • The Cyber Security Research and Development Center, supported by SRI for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security

  • Medical countermeasures to prevent, diagnose, and treat conditions caused by potential and existing chemical agents of terrorism
