  Information Awareness Office - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Information Awareness Office ("IAO") was established by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency ("DARPA"), the research and development agency of the United States Department of Defense, in January 2002 to bring together several DARPA projects focused on applying information technology to counter transnational threats to national security.
The IAO mission was to "imagine, develop, apply, integrate, demonstrate and transition information technologies, components and prototype, closed-loop, information systems that will counter asymmetric threats by achieving total information awareness".
The IAO was established by DARPA after the events of 9/11 to bring several related DARPA projects together under the leadership of one technical office director in order to focus the development of advanced information technology to counter terrorist threats.
