What is LTRI?

Louisiana Tech Research Institute (LTRI) is the formal recognition of the existing and productive partnership efforts between Louisiana Tech University and the Cyber Innovation Center (CIC). The goal of LTRI is to (1) enable Louisiana Tech University and CIC to secure new work (and thus jobs) in new ways from both industry and defense partners, (2) ensure critical work and personnel remain at Barksdale Air Force Base (BAFB) by providing the US Air Force with next-door access to a dedicated R&D/applied research center, (3) build focused competencies to attract talent and industry, and (4) serve as the official home for cyber-, defense-, and intelligence-related education, training, and workforce development programs for North Louisiana.
LTRI focuses on supporting the defense and intelligence communities by advancing applied research across three core areas: cyber, resiliency, and energy. LTRI gives the National Cyber Research Park (NCRP) and North Louisiana a tremendous competitive advantage.
