Programs: FAS projects are organized under four main program areas:
Earth Systems
Educational Technologies
Strategic Security.

The mission of FAS is to promote a safer and more secure world by developing and advancing solutions to important science and technology security policy problems by educating the public and policy makers, and promoting transparency, through research and analysis to maximize impact on policy.

FAS was founded in 1945 by scientists who worked on the Manhattan Project to develop the first atomic bombs. These scientists recognized that science had become central to many key public policy questions, and that they had a unique responsibility to inform public policy makers of potential dangers from scientific and technological advances, and to show how good policy could increase the benefits of new scientific knowledge. Priding itself on an ability to bring together people from many disciplines and organizations, FAS often addresses critical policy topics that are not well covered by other organizations.
