Conducts applied research and actionable exercises with the end goal of assuring U.S. critical infrastructure and resilience in the event of cyber-attacks.
Executes research and development activities resulting in rapid prototyping and fielding of man-portable technologies that expand warfighter capabilities.
Develops research-based operational strategies for cyber-enabled management of offensive and defensive information.
The Cyber Operations Research Institute (CORI) was founded on the underlying assumption that cyberspace is an arena for international and sub-national conflict. No single organization in government, industry, or academia can, by itself, adequately contemplate or address any of the complex issues of cyber conflict. The role and mission of the military in national defense must be updated to account for the potential cyber threats to civilian-owned infrastructures in periods of armed conflict. CORI contributes to national cyber preparedness by:
The Defense Technologies Research Institute (DTRI) was established to leverage technology as a significant enabler to enhanced performance on a complex, asymmetrical battlefield. Our SME’s provide a unique link between the current user and the private sector provider of an emerging technology. DTRI promotes research and development of advanced man-portable systems in the areas of visual augmentation, sensors, mobility equipment, communications and information assurance, and force protection by seeking to adopt, adapt, or modify existing or new technologies that provide expanded capabilities to US forces.
The Information Warfare Research Institute (IWRI) investigates the nature of information warfare as a critical force that impacts the success or failure of our republic. IWRI research is aimed at understanding the tools of information warfare and information operations, developing a tested framework to deconstruct campaigns executed against us, and build successful activities against our adversaries. Development of detailed analyses of the informational battle space are key. IWRI is creating a process to intercept, collect, analyze, and disrupt (I-CAD) across multiple languages for understanding offensive and defensive influence operations.
The Cyber Training Research Institute (CTRI) is a member of the National Cybersecurity Preparedness Consortium (NCPC). CTRI SME’s, along with our NCPC partner institutions, develop and deliver DHS/FEMA-certified online and face-to face training courses to states, counties, and critical infrastructure organizations nationwide to address cybersecurity and cyber terrorism threats. With experience in cognitive theory, instructional design, and human computer interfaces, CTRI develops technology-based instruction that fosters active learning. Courses are available at no cost!
Measure to regularize funding for five-university consortium including Norwich works way through Congress
A bill the U.S. Senate passed late last month could put Norwich University and the rest of a national cybersecurity consortium closer to receiving consistent annual federal contracts for developing a national cybersecurity training program for governments and private industry.
