The Johns Hopkins University Center for Aerospace-Defense Research and Engineering (CADRE) serves the aerospace and defense industries as a U.S. national resource and nexus for scientifically based technical research, and analysis of energetics, explosives and propulsion systems. Formerly known as CPIAC, CADRE continues a 70-year legacy of connecting the public and private sector to advance scientific discovery through the application of technical research and analysis, laboratory experimentation for generating and publishing new data, open and classified conference planning, and team building.

In its 25th year with the JHU Whiting School of Engineering (WSE), CADRE, a small dedicated group of full time staff, Subject Matter Experts, small businesses and academic partners both within and outside of JHU, will continue to serve as a trusted and independent member of the aerospace and defense community. As a non-profit cost recovery operation, CADRE is funded through direct contracts and grants with public and private sponsors.

Additionally, CADRE will continue several decades of continual support to the DoD Information Analysis Center as a primary partner on the Defense Systems Information Analysis Center.
