The National Academy of Sciences (NAS) formed the Committee on International Security and Arms Control (CISAC) in 1980 as a permanent committee to bring the resources of the Academy to bear on critical problems of international security and arms control. CISAC, in the Policy and Global Affairs Division, draws from the nation’s finest scientific, technical, engineering and medical talent to advise the government, contribute to the work of non-governmental organizations, and inform the public about scientific and technical issues related to international security and arms control. CISAC’s work benefits from a rotating membership of distinguished scientists, policy and military experts. The Committee carries out its mandate through a variety of activities that receive financial support from public and private sponsors.

CIT helps innovative Virginia-based technology and life sciences start-up companies secure their first seed investment. They focus on the enhancement of research and technology transfer activities of Virginia universities and the new technologies, entrepreneurs and technology companies that make innovation happen. Their operating structure consists of service lines that enable them to respond to new opportunities with governmental and private sector clients. CIT has three four service lines: CIT Entrepreneur, CIT R&D, CIT Broadband and CIT Connect.
