Welcome to the 2021 Annual LAS Symposium


Each year, LAS undertakes a research program involving partners from a variety of academic, industry, and government communities. We intend for the outcomes of these research projects to be of interest to our United States Intelligence Community stakeholders, as well as the respective communities of our academic and industry partners.

The 2021 LAS Virtual Symposium website is an essential medium for LAS to present our work to these communities. Despite our inability to gather in person for a symposium, this website provides you an opportunity to both learn about and connect with the research that LAS performed this year. Here you will find videos describing all of our unclassified research projects, as well as a portal to reach out to the researchers behind those videos. ​


We invite you to use this website to learn more about the research and outcomes that LAS has pursued in 2021. Under the Research Projects menu at the top of the screen you will find a list of the 2021 LAS research themes. Clicking on one of these themes will take you to the webpage containing all of the projects and videos associated with that theme. If you would like a listing of all of the unclassified 2021 LAS research projects and videos, you can click on the link in the menu for the Research Project Index. If you would like to learn more about what LAS is and how it works, you can view the LAS Overview video below.


If you'd like to connect with a team to discuss or learn more about their project(s), please use the 'Request follow-up on this project' link that accompanies each research project. For all other LAS related inquiries, you are encouraged to submit us an inquiry via the 'Contact Us' link at the top of the page. Thank you for your interest in LAS!
