Camp Roberts Humanitarian Experiments fosters increased interoperability between humanitarian technologies. It's formal name is RELIEF (Research and Experimentation for Local and International First-Responders). However, because our community convenes at Camp Roberts in the central coast of California, the community of researchers around the activity has made it common use to refer to the experiments by location rather than use of the official acronym. That said, our experimentation has no affiliation with the base beyond being a very, very grateful guest. Camp Roberts is convened through a partnership between the Naval Postgraduate School and the National Defense University's TIDES program (Transformative Innovation for Development and Emergency Support). This research project is coordinated at the Center for Technology and National Security Policy (CTNSP) at the National Defense University (NDU), which is part of the Department of Defense.
