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

The TETRAD Institute is a private research organization that includes two distinct, focal, organized centers of activity:

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.

PRIMUS Center foundational theoretical physics, particularly the integration of quantum mechanics, particle physics, relativity theory and astrophysics, particularly focused upon emerging energy technologies.

These both exist as centers of study and research, operating as compact, collaborative, low-infrastructure and low-resource facilities. These two Centers have specific Programs and Projects that are their primary focus of activity.

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 two major long-term TETRAD Institute Programs, complementing those of the two Centers:
