Special Access for Cities and States
Cities and states are among today's leading-edge innovators. They roll out citizen-centric programs and services, streamline operations, and reach policy goals. And MITRE and our federal partners stand ready to help them achieve those goals.
We operate at the front lines to build and enhance capabilities in public safety, population health, transportation efficiency, and community resilience. MITRE welcomes cities and states to tap our know-how, seek referrals, and explore emerging capabilities. Make use of our 60-year legacy bridging technology and policy, operating 143 technical centers, sustaining 8,000 scientists and engineers, all focused exclusively on creating public-interest impact. Our experts partner with foundations, universities, and associations to support regions, states and cities tackling tough challenges, applying innovative technologies, and navigating consequential, complex decisions.
Here are some recent examples of how MITRE is already supporting the needs of cities and states by taking advantage of our technical capabilities:
- Cyber experts from the Homeland Security Systems Engineering Development Center developed the recently released State Cybersecurity Governance Cross Site Report for the Department of Homeland Security.
- Our independent research program has studied the potential of smart-city technology for years. Our researchers are deeply involved in ways to use data analytics to improve how cities function by harnessing the massive amount of data now available from devices, sensors, and social media.
- Our simulation experiments demonstrate how engaging with the public one-on-one improves situational awareness and helps decision makers respond more effectively during emergencies.
- A MITRE cybersecurity engineer discussed how risk-limiting audits can protect the integrity of voting systems in every state.
MITRE is active in communities around the nation. Our capabilities are used for border efficiency, cyber-supply chains, fraud detection, disaster recovery planning, accelerating court dockets, designing safety for the public square, fighting disease, perfecting sensors, integrating data for meaningful use and orchestrating dependable autonomy. How can our innovative thinking help you?
