IARPA Announces Launch of SCISRS Program

WASHINGTON, D.C. - The Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity, the research and development arm of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, announced today the start of a multi-year research effort aimed at developing smart radio techniques that can automatically detect and characterize radio frequency (RF) signals potentially associated with attempted data breaches.

 

WASHINGTON, D.C. - The Office of the Director of National Intelligence today released “Climate Change and International Responses Increasing Challenges to U.S. National Security Through 2040,” the first NIE on climate change. Produced through the National Intelligence Council, ODNI’s center for long-term strategic analysis, the report assesses the near- and medium-term geopolitical implications of climate change abroad.

 

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Director of National Intelligence Avril Haines today issued the following statement on the passing of Former Secretary of State Colin Powell:

 

“We have lost an extraordinary public servant and American statesman with the passing of Former Secretary of State Colin Powell. A kind, thoughtful, and passionate human being who worked tirelessly to make our world a better place. Secretary Powell served in a variety of critical national security positions, was a decorated veteran, and a champion of national, public, and military service. On behalf of the Intelligence Community, we thank Secretary Powell for his devotion to America and we hope his legacy brings his family comfort in this difficult time."

 

The Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity, the research and development arm of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, announced today a multi-year research effort called the Robust Energy Sources for Intelligence Logistics In Extreme, Novel and Challenging Environments (RESILIENCE) program.

 

RESILIENCE will develop portable power solutions for electronics that can operate under the demanding operational conditions experienced by Intelligence Community (IC) officers. If successful, it will provide power sources to extend the function of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) with vertical take-off and landing capability and unattended electronic devices, which must operate in extreme environmental conditions for years.

 

Director of National Intelligence Avril Haines today issued the following statement: “I congratulate Tom Monheim on his confirmation as Inspector General of the Intelligence Community. Tom is a tremendous leader with integrity and empathy who has devoted his career to public service and advancing U.S. national security. The Intelligence Community will benefit greatly from his unwavering commitment to independence and objectivity.”
