National Strategic Research Institute

About National Strategic Research Institute

The National Strategic Research Institute at the University of Nebraska helps the Department of Defense (DOD) and other federal agencies meet evolving national security objectives in multiple domains. Scientists from the University of Nebraska and NSRI deliver responsive, innovative research and solutions while developing the workforce of the future.

Established in 2012, NSRI is one of 14 University Affiliated Research Centers (UARCs) in the nation engaged in a long-term, strategic partnership with the DOD. The only UARC sponsored by a unified combatant command, NSRI provides mission-essential research and development capabilities for United States Strategic Command (USSTRATCOM) as well as other DOD components and federal agencies focused on strategic deterrence and national security.

NSRI receives funding from project sponsors through contracts generated from a sole-source, Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity contract with USSTRATCOM, as well as other direct contract vehicles and grants.

In total since 2012, NSRI and hundreds of University of Nebraska researchers and students have delivered on more than 120 contracts and grants for a total of $298 million.
