About TETRAD Institute, its Centers, and its Corporate Alliance Partners

The TETRAD Institute is a private research organization. About our organization, board, management, sponsors, fellows and research team members, read here. Our focus is upon primary, fundamental basic science and includes two distinct, focal, organized centers of activity:

PRIMUS Center foundational theoretical physics, particularly the integration of quantum mechanics, particle physics, relativity theory and astrophysics, particularly focused upon emerging energy technologies.
There are four main, permanent, long-term Programs:


ASTRA Center control, cybernetics, systems, communications, and engineering technology for cooperative, multi-agent, remote-operating systems, particularly serving space-based and extreme-type environments including in terrestrial and maritime environments.
There are four main, permanent, long-term Programs:

These two Centers comprise all of the eight (8) permanent Programs and twelve (12) permanent Projects within the long-term scope of the Institute, and all derivative projects are components integrated into one of the above Programs. The two Centers exist as loci of study and research, operating as compact, collaborative, low-infrastructure and low-resource facilities.


All components of the TETRAD Institute are aligned with other organizations including academic institutions, and open in sharing of ongoing work and results. Also within the TETRAD Institute are other Programs and Projects relating to fundamental and applied science and technology. Some of these are primarily of computational, neurobiological and/or socioeconomic focus. These include Programs of a highly interdisciplinary and multi-science nature, complementing those other Programs and their Projects within the two Centers:



The Alliance of Partners is a special group of independent companies working closely with TETRAD Institute. The Alliance includes:

[1] Intelligence Renaissance Industries (IRI) - information-centric technologies and environments for Communicating, Collaborating, Making, Educating, Entertaining and Trading including the OASIS Worlds Dynamic-Reality-Experience Environment, CYBOT personalizable and reconfigurable robotics, IBANK Private Information Bank and Trust, and SELDON Prediction Engine. Within IRI are two long-term future-directed STEM-focused business components :

[2] Oasis Clinic for Neurophysiological Wellness - a public program for evaluation, facilitation and management of patient/family-optimized medical care including wholistic-oriented therapies for neurological and psychological disorders.
