Cybersecurity and Navy Information Dominance

See What’s on the Cyber Horizon:
Cyber R&D Center of Excellence

The Software Engineering Institute and Carnegie Mellon University are collaborating to create a Cyber R&D Center of Excellence that would leverage an operational imperative to pioneer and evolve advanced information technology into an affordable, executable, and secure global architecture within the Cyber Domain. This would strategically align cross-disciplinary teams in the information dominance corps and strengthen our war-fighting capabilities in cyber-centric operations.

Welcome AFCEA Navy Information Dominance Attendees

The Software Engineering Institute (SEI) is proud to be a part of the AFCEA Navy Information Dominance Day. For over 25 years, the SEI has partnered with the DoD, Intelligence Community, and other federal agencies to provide technologies, services, and initiatives that produce high-impact solutions through innovative research and development.

Mapping the Cyber Domain:
The SEI and our Mission Areas

The SEI’s Mission Areas exemplify the type of work we are currently researching and developing with a continued focus on moving forward into innovative and dynamic sectors.  The Mission Areas are the framework for the technologies and services we provide, such as XNET/cyber training, digital forensics, and malware analysis.

The SEI Mission Areas

Cyber Security and Assurance

Mission Area
  • Conduct the research and development, technical transition, and technical operational support activities needed to develop, mature, and broadly transition new
    • software and system development technologies and practices
    • system and network monitoring and management technologies and practices
    • digital investigations and intelligence methods and tools that are effective at reducing the impact of cyber attacks
  • Anchor research and development efforts in operational challenges and realities
  • Pilot and prototype with strategic customers to set realistic transition paths

Acquisition Excellence for Software-Reliant Systems

Mission Area
  • Enable the U.S. Interagency (DoD/IC) to design, acquire, develop, and sustain systems and capabilities on target, on time and on budget
  • Codify and transition high-impact methods, best-practices, and lessons learned through the development of online eLearning courses, workshops, conferences, publications, predictable performance, and assurance in the acquisition of software-reliant systems
  • Identify software and cyber engineering priority requirements and challenge problems for government customers

Assured and Flexible System Capabilities

Mission Area
  • Automation for system design, construction, composition, and evaluation
  • Interdisciplinary foundations for designing, constructing, composing, maintaining, and evolving software-reliant systems, at all scales
  • Achieving system goals at acceptable cost

Acquisition and Engineering Management

Mission Area
  • Develop and steward models of management and engineering capability for the software and systems development, acquisition, service delivery, and workforce domains
  • Develop solutions and transition expertise for predictably improving organizational capability and performance
  • Research and publish models and data for use in analysis, diagnostics, feasibility studies, risk evaluation, and early warning indicators

SEI Building

About the SEI

The Software Engineering Institute (SEI) is a federally funded research and development center sponsored by the U.S. Department of Defense and operated by Carnegie Mellon University.
