About Institute for Defense Analyses

The Institute for Defense Analyses (IDA) is a not-for-profit corporation that operates three Federally-Funded Research and Development Centers serving the Office of the Secretary of Defense, Advanced Research Projects Agency, the Defense Office of Test and Evaluation, the Joint Chiefs of Staff and other Federal Agencies.

IDA is a nonprofit corporation whose purpose is to promote national security and the public interest and whose primary mission is to assist the Office of the Secretary of Defense, the Joint Staff, the unified commands and defense agencies in addressing important national security issues, particularly those requiring scientific and technical expertise. To avoid institutional pressures in support of Service positions, IDA does not work directly for the Military Departments. To ensure freedom from commercial or other potential conflicts of interest, IDA does not work for private industry or foreign governments.

IDA's research requires in-depth knowledge of defense systems, technologies, operations, strategies, and resources. Our work addresses issues of both long-term and immediate concern. IDA's research program includes multi-year efforts, and quick response analyses in areas of established expertise. The work often requires privileged access to information, including sensitive government information and industry proprietary data not normally available to non-government organizations.

IDA offers competitive salaries and benefits including:
