Director's Message


Welcome to Purdue's Institute for Defense Innovation (IDI). Our sole reason to exist is to connect our deep and broad research expertise to end users in the defense community while building needs focused centers of excellence in support of the United States Departments of Defense and Homeland Security. IDI is a facilitating organization designed to serve as an external point of contact and internal mentor and facilitator. I invite you to visit each of our center websites and would be pleased to assist you with a visit.
