If you choose to do research at a US government or military research site, please note that you will be responsible for learning about their application process, following all of their instructions and guidance, and contacting them directly if you have questions about their requirements. Their review process might take months, and their approval is not guaranteed. You should determine how long it might take to go through their process and decide if you are willing to spend that time. If you decide to go through a lengthy review process with the US government/military, you can talk to your chair or advisor about taking a leave of absence while waiting for permissions.
