Quantum Information Program Picks Up Speed
On May 31, 2002, scientists from MITRE took the world one step closer
to unlocking the secret of creating practical, unbreakable code.
a Better Web
MITRE is at the forefront of research for the Semantic Web—an
enhanced, technically advanced version of the current Web. It could
change your life.
Contributes Its Own Inventions to the Public
In today's economic turmoil, industry and venture capital firms want
to invest in proven technology. One of our purposes is to transfer
MITRE's technology developments to the public, through open source,
licensing, and other agreements. It's a good match.
It's a Small World
in Any Language
MITRE's Translingual Instant Messaging (TrIM) enables coalition partners
to share information and more effectively plan and execute strategies
using a fast, secure, and understandable communications tool.
Knowledge with Information Repository Technology
Information repository technology may be able to assist warfighters
in highlighting the consequences of operational decisions based on
the relationships discovered in the repository.
Computer Displays Provide Critical Information Anytime, Anywhere
Wearable computer displays may one day become a standard piece of
attire. MITRE is analyzing ways this technology can work compatibly
in the real world and the cyberworld.
on Story Telling
Both the government and commercial sectors want alternative, but
effective, methods for presenting complex information that will make
it easier to grasp and to use. Storytelling may be the key.
the Tech Transfer Maze
Although many important projects are under way at MITRE, no idea
or invention is too small to warrant proprietary protections or to
consider for dissemination to a wider audience. Understanding the
technology transfer process will make this easier.
Storytelling seems oddly out of place in the high-tech swirl of MITRE
research and development. Yet, just beneath the surface, nestled in
with information technology and systems engineering, storytelling
is a rising star in the field of information visualization.
and Awards of Knowledge Management
The underlying principle of knowledge management, as practiced by
companies such as The MITRE Corporation, is that knowledge is power.
If, in doing a job, one of our employees learns something that might
benefit others across the company, he or she should preserve that
knowledge and make it available.
Space: A Fundamental
Part of the Infosphere
XML can help expose data semantics and customize data dissemination.
Exploring the Human Brain
A human brain mapping system proposed by MITRE scientists promises
to revolutionize how neuroscience research is conducted.
Air in Alaska's Vast Frontier
Air travel in Alaska is much more dangerous than in the continental
United States because of the lack of radar and the harsh weather and
terrain. MITRE brought an idea to improve air safety in Alaska to
the Federal Aviation Administration and the state of Alaska. The new
technology is in the air and working well.
Today more than 5,000 planes fly through U.S. airspace at any given
time. Keeping them on schedule is no small task. The FAA and MITRE,
with participation across the aviation community, are working to develop
innovative ways to keep passengers and cargo on time.
Problem Analysis Resolution
and Ranking (PARR): Seeing What's Ahead
MITRE technology provides air traffic controllers with enhanced decision-support
capabilities to improve the services of the National Airspace System.
VRoom Puts Info Streams
MITRE created the VRoom to help decision-makers work effectively
in command and control situations–whether it's combat, air traffic
control, or emergency management. In any of these scenarios, you need
to quickly process data from multiple information sources. MITRE's
VRoom research and battlefield visualization technology may prove
valuable in a variety of situations.
"MIDAS" Touch: MITRE's Unique Intrusion Detection and Analysis Capability
MITRE's internal IDS analysis system is a result of significant research
and engineering and provides MITRE with a leading-edge capability
unlike anything else available today.
Helps Keep AWACS Flying
The E-3 Sentry aircraft with its Airborne Warning and Control System
continues to be the premier air battle command and control aircraft
in the world thanks to MITRE's systems engineering expertise.
Global Grid Enhances Military Communications
A single, secure infrastructure providing seamless, end-to-end capabilities
to all warfighters.
Information Key to Homeland Security Portal
Protecting the U.S. from terrorist threats involves information—lots
of it. MITRE's Homeland Security Information Service portal provides
a prototype design for sharing that information.
Guide Soldiers to Safety
When the U.S. Army asked MITRE to find a better communications solution
for rugged terrain, the result was EIS+—an innovative satellite-based
system that makes our soldiers safer.
Instant Messaging Translates into NATO Success Story
Many military actions today involve coalitions of multiple countries.
It's difficult to communicate instantly, securely, and in a language
each individual understands. MITRE has created a new tool that makes
Research Center Focuses on IT and Intelligence Community
Finding valuable tidbits within mounds of information is a critical
task for intelligence organizations. MITRE is helping the intelligence
community find better ways of analyzing and managing information so
that staff can get quick, direct answers to specific questions. One
way we help is by managing the Northeast Regional Research Center.
Michael Minter, who works in Field Intelligence Systems at MITRE's
San Antonio site, is one of more than 30 MITRE reservists who, after
Sept. 11, put aside their civilian clothes and donned their uniforms
to join the fight against terrorism.
Shortly after the Sept. 11 tragedies, MITRE President and CEO Marty
Faga appointed Bob Mikelskas, vice president in the Center for Integrated
Intelligence Systems (CIIS), and Agam Sinha, vice president in the
Center for Advanced Aviation System Development (CAASD), to coordinate
MITRE's Homeland Security efforts.
the Pentagon DATA NETWORKS: Coming Through Loud and Clear
The Sept. 11 terrorist attack on the Pentagon killed nearly 200 military
personnel and civilians and severely damaged parts of the building's
communications network. Shortly after the attack, employees of The
MITRE Corporation who worked in The Pentagon began the critical task
of helping to assess the damage and stabilize the building’s communications
Deployed to World Trade Center
"What can we do?" This question crossed the minds of millions of
Americans as the horrific images of September's terrorist attacks
flickered on their television screens. Rich Byrne, like millions of
others, asked himself the question of the moment—but then Byrne
came up with an idea.
the Way the IRS Operates
Modernizing a large government agency—while it continues to
conduct business—is like changing the tires of a car while it's
in motion. That's what MITRE is helping the IRS achieve as the organization
changes the way it does business, modernizing both systems and processes.
