Clearance and Security
In 2007 the DoD Trusted Access Program Office (TAPO) accredited SRI's wafer foundry as a Department of Defense (DoD) Category 1 Trusted Foundry. With this endorsement, SRI is able to offer the DoD and Government agencies a secure on-shore, QML-certified wafer foundry for military electronics.
SRI International has a TOP SECRET facility clearance and safeguarding capability (CAGE Code ODKS7). Secure communications (STU III telephones and secure fax) are available. The cognizant security authority is the Defense Security Service, Industrial Security Field Office, 2 Greentree Centre, Suite 120, Marlton, NJ, 08053.
Since 1989, SRI International has had a DIA-accredited Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility (SCIF).
