Cybernet Systems Corporation is a solutions company committed to advancing human performance through the application of technology. Cybernet is a leader in American research and development in the medical and defense fields and is one of the country's largest Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) contract winners. Located in Ann Arbor, Michigan, Cybernet was founded in 1989 and has completed hundreds of U.S. Department of Defense contracts and is a woman-owned small business.

Unlike pure research companies or universities, Cybernet has been committed since its inception to successfully developing technology and bringing its research to market. By specifically focusing on technologies that enhance human performance, Cybernet has successfully converted research and development endeavors into commercially viable and useful products for the commercial, defense and medical markets.

Cybernet Chairman, Heidi Jacobus founded the company while pursuing her doctorate in computer science from the University of Illinois, Urbana. With Chuck Jacobus, her husband, Heidi launched the company with the ultimate objective of blurring the lines of human interaction with devices to the point where such interaction becomes transparent.

In the company's two decades, Cybernet has made significant contributions to the health, productivity and security of America and the world. Together with a dedicated staff made of engineers, scientists and skilled business professionals, Heidi and Chuck have built Cybernet Systems Corporation into a trusted partner for the U.S. government and private contractors alike, providing solutions to some of the world's biggest challenges.
