Technology Transfer - Information Processing

Releasable Technologies:

These are only a few of the available technologies. To see additional technologies view our complete list of Technology Fact Sheets.

The development, mastery, and management of advanced information processing techniques are crucial to the mission of the NSA. New information processing techniques and communications capabilities have grown at an explosive rate in recent years. Our technologies must recover, process and analyze signals transmitted in all mediums of communication. In the future, we must continue to design and develop efficient, secure encoding techniques that satisfy the communications needs of the U.S. government and are capable of operating under all environments across diverse communications networks.

Advances in communications technologies increase the complex set of speech, data, video and multimedia signals, and the need for comprehensive information processing techniques. The NSA is aggressively leading research efforts in these directions. New advances are being made and applied to the collection and processing of various forms of communication, and the protection of communications among U.S. government organizations, including military, other defense, and non-defense agencies.

Commercial applications of our information processing technologies include efficient techniques for secure mobile communications, cutting-edge machine learning technologies, and high-speed, wide-band-width multimedia signaling. The information processing expertise of the NSA has already made a significant contribution to industry and over time it will continue to further the nation's competitiveness within the global economy.
