Integrated Research Center for Network Sciences Collaborative Technology Alliance Army Research Laboratory
The Network Science Collaborative Technology Alliance (NS CTA) is a collaborative research alliance between the US Army Research Laboratory (ARL), other government researchers, and a Consortium of four research centers:
- SCNAR, the Social/Cognitive Academic Research Center
- INARC, the Information Networks Academic Research Center
- CNARC, the Communications Networks Academic Research Center
- IRC, Interdisciplinary Research Center
The Alliance unites research across organizations, technical disciplines, and research areas to address the critical technical challenges of the Army and Network-Centric Warfare (NCW). Its purpose is to perform foundational cross-cutting research on network science, resulting in greatly enhanced human performance for network-enabled warfare and in greatly enhanced speed and precision for complex military operations.
SONIC participates in the INARC and IRC
