soldier viewing video on a tablet
DARPA taps SRI to deliver usable video and analytics to U.S. Armed Forces when and where they need it.
bioscience workers in a lab
SRI is conducting preclinical development of treatments for diseases such as tuberculosis, West Nile virus, hepatitis, and biodefense pathogens and toxins.
man viewing video on laptop
SRI is developing a novel search technology to quickly find events of interest in very large video collections.
two men fine-tuning mixed-reality cameras and helmet sensors
SRI’s mixed reality training system provides comprehensive mission rehearsal tools to improve warfighter training.
the ARM-H robotic hand
SRI and partners are developing highly dexterous low-cost robotic hands for military applications and other real-world uses.
Binary Fission logo
By playing a game, citizen scientists can help increase reliability of mission-critical software systems.
row of vials containing glowing material
In a nuclear or radiological incident, first responders must quickly measure the radiation exposure of a large number of individuals, since treatment options are radiation dose-dependent and time-sensitive. SRI is developing a biodosimeter to meet this critical challenge.

SRI and partners developed human-instructable computing technology to let users change software in ways that traditionally require skilled programmers.
U.S. soldier shaking hands with an Afghan man
SRI is creating technology to translate multiple foreign languages in all genres, retrieve information from translated material, and enable bilingual communication via speech or text.
artist's rendering of a lump of coal with black oil dripping from it
SRI has developed a green, cost-effective approach to create liquid fuels from existing natural resources.
CTSRD computer system components
SRI and the University of Cambridge are designing, prototyping, and analyzing trustworthy computer systems that can be gradually adopted with high reliability, resilience, and assurance, effectively letting system and application developers ‘wipe the slate clean' in incremental steps.

To keep astronauts, equipment, and satellites out of harm’s way, SRI provides a rare capability to quickly track tens of thousands of objects in near-Earth space.
Dovetail logo
SRI and partners are developing new tools to extract better meaning and actionable analysis from data sources.
soldiers viewing arial surveillance images
Called “the best training we’ve ever received” by participating soldiers, instrumented combat-readiness exercises for members of the National Guard develop life-saving skills prior to deployment.
An SRI researcher observes FRASTA images on a computer
SRI has developed a breakthrough technology for diagnosing and predicting fatigue failure in pipelines, aircraft, bridges, power plants, and other structures using quantitative 3D fractography.
canisters of hydrogen stacked up next to a flammability warning sign
SRI has partnered with Sandia National Laboratories to provide the data necessary to ensure that hydrogen can be used safely as a transportation fuel.
diagram showing how language is used in various settings
SRI is developing software that can uniquely identify a system’s users from spoken and written inputs, rather than using passwords.
micro-robots
SRI is developing new technology to reliably control thousands of micro-robots for smart manufacturing of macro-scale products in compact, integrated systems.
scientist checking a batch of vaccines
SRI has patented a novel approach to vaccine delivery that is safe for pediatric use, eliminating the need for painful injections.
scientist working with a chelating agent
A new oral version of a known chelating agent can defend against mass radiation exposure in a terrorist attack.
