[4] The following portions of the RAND Corp. are FFRDCs: Project Air Force, National Defense Research Institute (formerly Defense/Office of the Joint Chiefs of Staff), the Arroyo Center, and the Critical Technologies Institute. All other agency support to RAND is reported under "other nonprofit institutions excluding FFRDCs." [TOP]

[5] Only the C3I Federally Funded Research and Development Center and the Center for Advanced Aviation System Development parts of the MITRE Corp. are FFRDCs. All other agency support to MITRE is reported under "other nonprofit institutions excluding FFRDCs." [TOP]

[6] In September 1991 the name was changed from Solar Energy Research Institute. [TOP]
