CINO concentrates on the collection, analysis, processing, exploitation, transportation and visualization of signals, data and information. Cyberspace and the wider information environment are our focus. By leveraging our expertise in information and communication technologies (ICT), and navigation systems, we evolve ideas from concepts, through design, prototypes, testing and evaluation. We equip the USG with the capabilities needed for the nation’s top priorities.
Our mission focus spans the physical warfighting domains: land, air, space, maritime, electromagnetic spectrum, and cyberspace. We are focused on our DoD and other USG sponsors who benefit from an established, trusted relationship, and our agility and ability to rapidly innovate and provide prototypes that meet national security needs sought by our sponsors for their missions.
Advanced Science and Technology (AST) focuses on nascent technologies in the areas of electromagnetics, electromagnetic maneuver warfare, quantum sciences, and sensors.
Through cross-Division and cross-Office collaborations, AST provides foundational basic and applied research products in these areas to benefit the USG and warfighter communities.
Communications and Signal Processing (CSP) supports the DoD and IC by providing basic and applied research expertise to develop and prototype advanced communications systems and associated technologies.
CSP supports the transition of these prototype capabilities to operational utility.
Cyber, Modeling, and Simulation (CMS) conducts research and development on full spectrum cyber capabilities, providing warfighters with strategic and operational cyberspace superiority in conjunction with the ability to achieve and maintain information dominance.
CMS also leverages modeling and simulation expertise and other resources to deliver prototypes, demonstrations, and accelerated transitions of emerging research and technologies vital to national security needs, in addition to performing research, development, testing, and evaluations facilitating innovation in practice and development of critical, in-demand capabilities.
A cyber center of excellence, CMS researches, develops, and delivers to sponsors a diverse range of innovative, forward-thinking cyber capabilities spanning the entire electromagnetic spectrum, and featuring the speed and agility required to achieve cyberspace domain dominance.
The Geospatial, Image, and Data Sciences Division focuses on GeoSpatial Intelligence (GEOINT) and its supporting disciplines, while supporting the National System for Geospatial Intelligence (NSG).
Our team of researchers includes image scientists, mathematicians, computer scientists, engineers, geographers, and meteorologists.
Navigation Research and Development (NRD) serves the DoD by performing precision navigation research, development, testing, and evaluation to meet current and future military mission needs. NRD provides system engineering and technical advice for transitioning new technology and advanced capabilities into military platforms through utilization of specialized scientific and engineering navigation experts and a unique testing facility.
Visualization and Decision Support (VDS) researches, develops, and applies technical innovations that provide decision advantage through the use of visualizations, analytics, geographic information systems, simulations, and collaboration technologies.
