The Institute for Scientific Research currently conducts investigations in several widely diverse areas of national interest. 

We conduct basic and applied research in space chemistry, plasma chemistry, astrophysics, and space weather forecasting, as well as protection of orbiting satellites.

We provide analysis, expertise, and data management support for advanced remote hyperspectral imaging technology for our nation's defense.

We participated materially in the planning, installation and continuing operation of the Low Latitude Ionospheric Sensor Network, a distributed observatory linked throughout the continent of South America.

We provide Scientific Information Management services for a wide variety of research projects and remote sensing programs.
