Advanced science.  Applied technology.

Internal R&D

Our internal research and development program is an investment in the technologies our clients will need in the future. It allows SwRI scientists and engineers the freedom to advance innovative, unproven concepts to help tackle client challenges. The program also helps broaden our technology base, advance our knowledge, and expand our reputation as a leader in science and technology.
