Robotics, Space & Quantum

We don’t believe in incremental improvement. We invent technologies and develop high-performance solutions that change the world.

An invention isn’t an innovation unless it makes an impact. SRI conducts use-inspired R&D to shorten the time to new capabilities and create first-of-their kind prototypes on the most ambitious technological fronts.

Quantum systems

Leading a national consortium to expand quantum R&D and break the cost and size barrier for practical quantum systems.
