Thanks, Leomar, as well as everyone else. This is a Venezuelan Institute, somewhat similar to a defense university, including degrees in political sciences, open to civilians as well as higher ranking military personnel.
I founds web page links, communicated with some who provided suggestions individually, and also with retired Venezuelan naval officers who were most helpful.
The Institute is known as IAEDEN, does not have a web page, and has been translated officially (by Vzlan links) as well as in related reports as: National Defense Higher Studies Institute and Institute for Advanced Studies on National Defense.

National Defense Advanced Research Institute (See explanation)


Explanation:
There is a US government agency which is somewhat akin to that posed in your query. <<The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is the central research and development organization for the Department of Defense (DoD).>>

Therefore, the English syntax for your term, as I see it, should be National Defense Advanced Research Institute.

For further information about this agency go to the WEB site provided.

Follows from the last posting (National Defense Advance Resarch Institute)


Explanation:
Sorry! I forgot that anything placed between these <> gets omitted.

Here is the text omitted inadvertently from the above message:

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is the central research and development organization for the Department of Defense (DoD). It manages and directs selected basic and applied research and development projects for DoD, and pursues research and technology where risk and payoff are both very high and where success may provide dramatic advances for traditional military roles and missions and dual-use applications
