Les Rose, president of the company’s Reston, Va.-based Stratis unit, said he hopes the alliances will enhance the company’s standing in the national security market.
Stratis said it plans to target research and development projects in the private and public sectors.
The unit also plans to identify technology-related areas of interest and events for its current and potential customers.
The company will work with MIT’s computer science and artificial intelligence laboratory and UMD’s human-computer interaction laboratory.
MIT’s lab has studied computer science for nearly 50 years and UMD formed its lab in 1983.
