In today's world, the United States is both a military and an economic giant. Exercising control over information—getting it, understanding it, disseminating it, protecting it, and sometimes attacking it—is key to maintaining that superiority. The mission of the Applied Information Sciences Department (AISD) is advancing and applying information technology and information-based solutions to achieve:

  • global access to,
  • measurable assurance for,
  • swift exploitation of, and
  • targeted action against

information, to enhance the security of the nation.

AISD is committed to building expertise that will make it internally recognized as the key resource for information-related technology and externally recognized as a world-class organization.
