That’s why we create and nurture environments where innovation and collaboration are celebrated. Riverside Research doesn’t operate in a vacuum, and we surely don’t want to. We participate in open-source initiatives and seek out opportunities to collaborate with universities and other DOD partners. Because we know when threats to national security and public interest are neutralized, we all win.
We’re those kind of friends. Riverside Research is so serious about collaboration-fueled innovation that we’ve created both physical and online spaces where our team, mission partners, and customers can come together to create solutions in real-time. Our Commercial Innovation Center (CIC) is an online development and test platform that provides a secure yet open innovation ecosystem. And our Open Innovation Center (OIC) is our 30,000 square-foot R&D sandbox where our team and our partners come together to dream, experiment, test and refine - and then do it all over again.
Our process enables us to take novel research and ideas and develop them over a multi-year timeline - creating mature, applicable technology. Riverside Research has over five decades of integral defense and intelligence experience working directly with the United States government. Our history is entwined with innovative landmark achievements.
We are so excited to establish this new partnership. It fills an organizational goal we have for development of the region's geospatial ecosystem. Entrepreneurs and innovators, both locally and nationally, will have access to data they either didn't know existed or couldn't afford, and they will be able to experiment and make progress with this data in a collaborative environment without a government contract.
