Homeland Security and National Defense
As part of our mission, SRI helps the U.S. government meet imperative homeland security needs. In the past decade alone, SRI has performed more than $4B in contract R&D, primarily for the U.S. government.
Technologies and programs developed at SRI play important roles in U.S. military and civilian efforts to combat terrorism, at home and abroad—from mapping systems for air combat training used during the Cold War to speech-enabled translation software deployed in Afghanistan and Iraq.
SRI's solutions for safeguarding our nation range from instrumented combat training for the National Guard to cyber security, threat detection, and persistent surveillance technologies.
Through its unmatched engineering and systems integration expertise, SRI has developed solutions to challenging technology and security issues for more than 65 years. An experienced and reliable government contractor, SRI excels at collaborative partnerships with multiple stakeholders. We are skilled at early-phase, collaborative definition of new systems, and create platform technologies that enable future applications. Projects span the system life cycle, from concept definition through production and support, for end-to-end customer solutions.
Clients include the Department of Homeland Security, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, the Homeland Security Advanced Research Projects Agency, National Institutes of Health, all branches of the Armed Services, and the National Guard.
