Talosorion is a bipartisan and independent nonprofit 501(c)3 research and policy institution that trains and produces sensible and principled national security policies. Talosorion engages policymakers, experts, and the public with global ground truth data to provide the most fact-based analysis on a wide array of subject matter.  

Talosorion streamlines operations with the unconventional spirit that found and kept our country great. The 21st century presents national security challenges that can no longer consider diplomacy and military in isolation. 


Diplomatic and military strategy have always been, and remain today, separate worlds with separated thinkers, disconnected solutions, and different results. In the face of increasingly stateless enemies, this isolation and disconnect is dangerous and provides a false sense of security; diplomacy and Military strategy must be fused -- not isolated.   


We capitalize on the talents of diplomats, military leaders, and the intelligence community by guiding their focus to meet national security goals.

Talosorion, Courtland Sykes

The largest contributor to US failure in Iraq and Afghanistan was adopting a failing concept: having the military conduct diplomacy and having diplomats manage a battle space. Roles were reversed and disjointed. They must function as one conjoined body. 

Talosorion analyzes past successes and failures and advises on lessons learned regarding future strategies; moving forward in a new world of diplomatic and military consulting working together as one combined, cohesive strategy on behalf of the American people. We focus on geographic areas around the world plagued by conflict and work to strengthen the NATO security apparatus.

21st century war-fighting and crisis management have been redefined. We learned that every war zone requires efforts from diplomats and military strategists together. Never again will we see a war, led by modern forces, without diplomacy.

We learned, starting in Iraq and Afghanistan, that diplomats and senior military officers are necessary for accomplishing national security goals. Talosorion works to strengthen both diplomatic and military roles by fusing efforts rather than having them compete, which we are finding is a common theme around the world.  Talosorion offers experience in war zones, places of crisis, and conflict in Latin America, Eastern Europe, the Middle East, Southeast Asia, and the Horn of Africa.

It is imperative that our leaders adopt fusion in diplomatic and military efforts. It is equally important for diplomats and military leaders to maintain the integrity of their responsibilities rather than being misguided and mismanaged. We are equipped and prepared to face challenges around the world with this developing diplomatic and military fusion concept.
