Description CNA is a nonprofit research organization that operates the Center for Naval Analyses and the Institute for Public Research.

CNA's objective, empirical research and analysis helps decision makers develop sound policies, make better-informed decisions, and manage programs more effectively. We take a multi-disciplinary, field-based "real world" approach to our work, and provide public-sector organizations with the tools they need to tackle the complex challenges of making government more efficient and keeping our country safe and strong.

CNA pioneered the field of operations research and analysis nearly 70 years ago and, today, applies its efforts to a broad range of national security, defense, and public interest issues including education, health care and public health, homeland security, human capital management, and air traffic management.
