SRI gives rotary transmissions a makeover with a new cycloidal rolling motion that results in very high efficiency at a reasonable cost.
an AMISR array
SRI leads development of a modular, mobile radar facility used by research scientists and students from around the world.
the ARM-H robotic hand
SRI and partners are developing highly dexterous low-cost robotic hands for military applications and other real-world uses.
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.
soliders seen in night vision
SRI’s low-light CMOS image sensor will bring enhanced day and night situational awareness to U.S. troops through the DARPA PIXNET program.
SRI researcher looks at a Deep STARE imager and camera system.
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.
scientist drawing a chemical structure
SRI is developing a novel point-of-care tool for the early detection of devastating diseases.
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.
Micro-cylindrical ion trap arrays
SRI is developing small, highly sensitive arrays for pervasive monitoring of chemical and biological processes in the ocean and other environments.
A novel, ultra-compact variable transmission promises to dramatically increase efficiency for robotics systems and allow for safer human-robot interaction.
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.
SRI is developing new technology to reliably control thousands of micro-robots for smart manufacturing of macro-scale products in compact, integrated systems.
an SRI researcher examines a medical device prototype
To address a critical healthcare need, SRI is partnering to develop medical devices for treating children.
Three SRI researchers working on the wearable thermal management technology
SRI is developing a system to manage a person's heating and cooling individually, saving energy by not overheating or overcooling areas within a building where the person is not present.
gloved hand inserting a cartridge into the sentinel device
From raw sample to molecular results in minutes: The Sentinel Nucleic Acid Analysis System offers portable, real-time diagnosis of health conditions.
Two SRI researchers work on a RAX CubeSat
Disruptions in Earth's ionosphere from solar activity can cause communications blackouts, negatively affecting GPS and radio signals. SRI’s revolutionary small satellites offer a novel way to monitor such conditions.
image collage showing SRI's biometric system and a close-up of a man's eyes
SRI International is developing a system that delivers affordable, accurate iris recognition of moving subjects at a distance.
artist's conception of a decomposing electronic component
To meet an important military challenge, SRI is designing a sensor system that can disappear on command.
concept illustration of solar orbiter spacecraft approaching the sun
SRI is developing a customized CMOS imager for the Solar Orbiter spacecraft that will allow scientists to study the sun from a closer distance than any previous mission.
prototype camera on a tripod
SRI has developed a novel camera device that can detect unusual or excess vibrations in machinery and aircraft.
