SRI International, Inc.
SRI International, headquartered in Menlo Park, California, is an independent, nonprofit research institute conducting client-sponsored research and development for government agencies, commercial businesses, foundations, and other organizations. For decades, SRI has contributed to military and civilian readiness to combat terrorism, from mapping systems for air combat training during the Cold War to translation software deployed in the Middle East today. Longstanding clients include all branches of the armed services, DARPA, DHS, NSA, and NASA. SRI solutions include border security technologies; ground- and foliage-penetrating radar; sensing; infrastructure protection; intelligence collection and analysis; instrumented combat training; two-way language translation; and advanced GPS.
Formerly Stanford Research Institute, SRI is well known for its legacy of innovations in communications and networks, computing, economic development and science and technology policy, education, energy and the environment, engineering systems, pharmaceuticals and health sciences, homeland security and national defense, materials and structures, and robotics.
SRI is organized into five divisions of major core competencies, each with an interdisciplinary approach to meeting client needs: Engineering & Systems Division, Policy Division, Information and Computing Sciences Division, Biosciences Division, and Physical Sciences Division.
SRI International's Engineering & Systems Division, the Institute's largest group, is a multidisciplinary engineering organization dedicated to development and application of operationally effective systems. We perform a variety of engineering research, systems engineering, testing, and integration services for commercial and government clients worldwide. Clients include the Department of Defense (U.S. Army, Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps, and Joint Services), the Department of Transportation, local government agencies, and domestic and international commercial companies.
SRI's for-profit subsidiary Sarnoff Corporation delivers vision, video and semiconductor technology innovations that empower government and commercial clients to see/sense, understand and control complex environments. Through contract research and development, Sarnoff makes continuous breakthroughs in real-time video processing; ICs, lasers, imaging and sensing devices; and end-to-end video solutions for defense, security, and surveillance.
SRI also provides R&D resources to portfolio companies, helping startups minimize risk and the cost of building an R&D infrastructure and team. We can also serve as an independent technology expert during the due diligence process.
