Who We Are

We are the premier foreign language research institution, addressing the challenges of national security, private industry, and academic research. Our work is conducted by research scientists in multiple disciplines in support of analytic areas in Language, Intelligence, Cyber, and Information.

Established in 2003 as a University Affiliated Research Center (UARC), we collaborate with academia, the private sector, and the U.S. government to advance the nation’s capabilities in language, culture, analysis, learning, and human performance by producing independently validated solutions.
