Tempe Site: ISTB4

The Security & Defense Systems Initiative (SDSI) headquarters are located on the Tempe campus in the Interdisciplinary Science and Technology Building 4 (ISTB4), ASU's newest and largest research building.

ISTB4 is the single largest research building at ASU, with roughly 300,000 square feet of premier high-technology research laboratories, office areas, and collaboration spaces specifically designed to promote transdisciplinary team interactions.  Geared toward facilitating multi-institutional ventures, ISTB4 provides flexible laboratories with adjoining workspace and numerous collaboration zones.

SDSI Headquarters occupies the 4th floor of ISTB-4, consisting of over 33,000 square feet of space dedicated to driving ASU’s engagement in large-scale research and development programs that address some of the most challenging areas in the security and defense sector.

As a unique interdisciplinary entity, SDSI combines researchers and staff from across all four campuses of ASU — the nation’s largest single university — together with the capabilities in our off-campus facilities to create a deep bench of knowledge and expertise that can work the nation’s toughest security and defense problems.
