Dayton, Ohio, has gained a cybersecurity research and development office. Galois said it recently signed a lease for a 3,000-square-foot office, which is to be co-located in the building with Nucleus incubator, Mile Two, and the Wright Brothers Institute. This is Galois’ third U.S. location — with headquarters in Portland, Oregon.

“Ohio has made cybersecurity a state-level priority, and Dayton’s commitment to supporting innovation makes the city the ideal fit to launch Galois’s third U.S. office,” said Aaron Miller, director of business strategy and operations for Galois in Dayton. “With the ability to create trustworthy systems that address the nation’s most intractable cybersecurity challenges, Galois brings unique capabilities to Ohio that can solidify the region’s reputation as a cybersecurity innovation hub.”

Galois is looking to expand its relationships in the research community and with commercial transition partners. The firm has experience working with the U.S. Defense Dept., NASA and the Dept. of Homeland Security. Recent Galois projects include:

  • A research grant from the Air Force Research Laboratory to develop an advanced network cyber deception technology.
  • A $10 million Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) grant to make legacy systems more secure.
  • The development of programming tools for safe and secure autonomous vehicles, developed as part of DARPA’s High Assurance Cyber Military Systems program, demonstrated at the Pentagon and deployed on Boeing’s optionally unpiloted Little Bird helicopter.
