Created during World War II to evaluate new weapons, IDA’s formalized its role and mission in 1956 with the debut of its new name. IDA now administers two federally-funded research and development centers on behalf of the Secretary of Defense, as well as the Science & Technology Policy Institute on behalf of the White House and the president’s science advisor. IDA’s library, which opened in 1960, is a joint facility serving both institutes. The orientation will feature:
