What We Do

CERDEC scientists and engineers understand the fast-paced, dynamic nature of communications-electronics and focus their expertise and infrastructure of advanced laboratories and facilities in areas that enhance collaboration, bridge technologies and lay the ground work for the Army to leverage innovation wherever it may occur.

To ensure a proven C4ISR system-of-systems solution, CERDEC’s expertise crosses platforms. CERDEC draws upon this expertise at every phase of the materiel lifecycle, and enhances this expertise through a dynamic network of domestic and foreign partners and customers in government, industry and academia.

CERDEC reduces risks, troubleshoots problems and expedites the delivery of advanced capabilities. Its engineers draw from a number of business and contractual agreements to facilitate information exchanges, evaluate novel approaches and candidate technologies, and establish partnerships for further development.
