Critical Infrastructure

Ensuring the integrity of essential systems.

Safeguarding assets like power plants, food and water systems, buildings, airports and mass transit systems is essential to protecting our citizens from natural disasters, terrorist threats and man-made disasters. Battelle works with clients in telecommunications, financial services, energy, agriculture and transportation to enhance and protect aging infrastructure and ensure cost-effective operational performance for years to come.

Clients value our integrated interdisciplinary scientific expertise, testing and measurement capabilities, advanced custom software tools and Continuous Technology Refreshment (CTR) initiatives.


Improve efficiency and safety with information-driven, intelligent air, land and sea transportation systems. Battelle integrates technology components into passenger vehicles, commercial trucks, and transit fleets, and develops embedded safety applications that leverage vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) and vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) connectivity. We are also the leading evaluator of transportation operations and security equipment in the United States.

Government Facilities
