The Next Wave (TNW) is a journal discussing the research and technological innovation taking place at the NSA. TNW began in 1992 as an internal employee newsletter known as Tech Trend Notes, but as a result of an increase in readership and external requests for the publication, it was released to the public in 2004 with a new name: The Next Wave.
By sharing our research in TNW, we aim to strengthen our existing relationships with federal labs, academia, industry, and the public, as well as generate new partnerships.
NSA researchers also publish in other journals, conference proceedings, and books. Visit Featured Publications by NSA Researchers to explore their contributions.
