Who we are:
The BAE Systems' Cyber & Communications Technologies Research (CCTR) Group is a leading multidisciplinary cyber R&D organization dedicated to meeting critical U.S. Cyber Security and Cyber Warfare needs. CCTR is the cyber R&D engine for all of BAE Systems North America, yet it runs more like a boutique firm. It's the best of both worlds--combining a small-company feel, in its own facility, with access to a large company's technology transition paths, customer base, and other resources. CCTR executes a variety of scientific and engineering R&D efforts for the Department of Defense (DoD) and the Intelligence Community (IC). Join us for amazing R&D challenges and work on revolutionary cyber technology that makes a direct real-world impact.
