Who We Are

The Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity invests in high-risk, high-payoff research programs to tackle some of the most difficult challenges of the agencies and disciplines in the Intelligence Community (IC).

IARPA collaborates across the IC to ensure that our research addresses relevant future needs. This cross-community focus ensures our ability to address cross-agency challenges, leveraging both operational and research and development expertise from across the IC, and coordinating transition strategies with our agency partners.
