Booz Allen: Emerging Technology Experimentation


Transforming Missions Through Emerging Technology

BrightLabs leads Booz Allen’s portfolio of applied research, prototyping, and experimentation initiatives. We combine in-depth expertise in emerging technologies with mission insights to incubate, prototype, and deliver solutions to advance our nation’s priorities.

Our evolving portfolio encompasses areas such as accelerated readiness, digital twins, spatial computing, 5G/NextG, edge cloud, AI-enabled software engineering and operations, and quantum computing. These areas are informed through in-depth conversations with mission leaders, our dedicated tech scouting team, and our corporate venture capital investments, which allows us to understand emerging commercial and adversarial innovations to help solve mission problems. By helping our clients navigate and test emerging technologies, we position them to learn about and adopt these capabilities faster into operational environments.


BrightLabs prototypes novel technology solutions and provides technical expertise for clients across a growing number of areas:

Deploying the AI You Need
Booz Allen deploys AI solutions enabling government organizations to design, engineer, and operationalize purpose-built AI solutions.


BrightLabs incubates promising capabilities, tests critical mission use cases, and iteratively scales pilots with our defense, national security, and civil sectors to accelerate value. Our experimentation gains urgency and immediacy from ongoing, direct collaboration with clients across these sectors, and our experts excel at identifying and operationalizing technologies that solve client problems. We often integrate, prototype, and advance these technologies with external partners, startups, and accelerators.
