    The Chesapeake Innovation Center (CIC) creates a bridge between major users of security technology and small companies at the forefront of innovation. The Center enhances America's technological edge and helps propel the 'Informatics Corridor' centered in Anne Arundel County, Maryland. The Center and its member companies specialize in informatics, knowledge discovery, security, visualization, information assurance, homeland security, human capital development, and other technology areas. The CIC is located in a 24,000 square-foot facility. Partners engage the CIC to scout for a particular technology solution to address a mission critical or highly visible problem. CIC Partners' objectives are typically to find a technology to acquire, invest in, team with and/or implement within their own enterprise. CIC also mentors selected early stage technology companies and provides these Member companies a menu of services to help them address the needs of growing companies including customer contracts, funding, staffing, subject matter experts, clearances, government contracting issues, and office facilities.
