Our mission is to provide innovative solutions to the most challenging critical needs that help keep America and its allies safe and strong by protecting our people, the environment and our way of life.
As a not-for-profit research and development company that strives to find unique, creative solutions for our customers' challenges, we’re committed to redefining possible®. We apply science, technology, information and relentless determination to solve the “impossible” with bright minds, fresh thinking and fearless innovation that is grounded in over 60 years of experience in defense, environment and intelligence. We not only seek but welcome the toughest problems — the ones most critical to our nation’s welfare, the ones where compromise is not an option. By constantly reinvesting in our people and our technologies, we never ask you to accept just what’s possible. We help you go beyond it.
