Why the name “Department 13”

During the Cold War the U.S. practiced the art of deception to protect vital secrets and projects. On its most sensitive projects, the U.S. often obfuscated a project’s purpose and its source of funding. One deceptive practice was to create shell organizations that were staffed with fake employees, such as ‘Typing Pool 12’ and ‘Paint Shop 22’. D13’s founder, Robi Sen, worked on one such sensitive project during the Cold War. As an homage to the dedication, commitment, and sacrifice of the people who participated on these projects, Sen named the company after one such shadow department: ‘Department 13’.
