What is an "alidade"? An alidade is at once a telescope and a compass. Found in the pilot house of every naval vessel, the alidade is used to magnify distant objects and determine their direction and rate of arrival, as well as to navigate in dangerous waters.The alidade is, of course, a perfect symbol of the firm's mission.

Jeffery R. Cares has been recognized by Cap Gemini Ernst & Young's Center for Business Innovation as one of the "top thought-leaders in Information Age innovation" and his work has been featured in New Economy journals such as Wired and Fast Company. His pioneering research into practical applications of complex systems research led him to start Alidade Incorporated in June of 2000. His vision was to combine practical experience with cutting-edge research to revolutionize military operations and commercial competition. With the tools and methods he and other Alidade researchers have developed, the firm has quickly grown to a multi-million dollar leader in Information Age innovation.

One of Alidade's greatest assets is its long association with and membership in the exclusive Santa Fe Institute Business Network. Through this association, researchers regularly collaborate on revolutionary Information Age process innovations with strategic planners from over 20 Fortune 500 companies. In addition, since March, 2001 Alidade has hosted the AlidadeOnlineDiscussion, an open-source discussion forum for the Who's Who of defense industry innovation.

In May 2003, Alidade Incorporated moved into "new" headquarters in the Ayrault House, a National Historic Landmark in Newport, Rhode Island.
