Sentar's cyber security research often results in very useful, unique tools or technology that are generally purpose-built or designed to solve a particular challenge (many of which we aren't at liberty to discuss). Often, these technologies can be used, integrated and exploited for a much wider commercial use than originally designed.
During the R&D phase, most companies call these types of efforts "Skunkworks projects".
Its always an exciting time at Sentar when a Skunkworks project graduates to this section of our site. These technologies have generally been funded under a Cyber R&D research award, have passed customer acceptance and met their requirements.
To us, this designation means the initial development phase has been successfully completed, even though even more significant benefits are achievable.
