Southwest Research Institute

About Us

We are R&D problem solvers providing independent, premier services to government and industry clients. Our multidisciplinary nature allows us to rapidly assemble diverse teams to tackle problems from multiple directions.

We push the boundaries of science and technology to develop innovative solutions that advance the state of the art and improve human health and safety. Operating as a nonprofit since our 1947 inception, we work in the public’s best interest and toward the betterment of humanity. And as a contract R&D organization, we are here when you need us.

We actively support our community

IN THE COMMUNITY

Our staff is expert at developing solutions that help build a better tomorrow today — and that practical, innovative spirit carries through to our community interactions. Staff members generously donate time and other resources to support food drives, blood drives, and other outreach programs.

Yet, as a research and development organization, the next generation of scientists and engineers is key to our continued success. We especially value programs and activities that support science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) for students. We sponsor internships and scholarships and serve as science fair judges and classroom speakers for area schools, among other activities.
