Dr. Robert Ing developed an electronic counter-surveillance training program for intelligence personnel in hostile environments (1990), authored one of the first white papers alerting the intelligence community to the national security risk of undetectable "backstop" instructive code computer viruses (1995), and developed a special anti-terrorism training program that over the years has been offered as the basis of a workshop for federal law enforcement personnel (1998).
In 1999 he created and coordinated a public accessible Internet based stolen property database containing serial numbers of stolen articles from the U.S. and Canada, that provided access to approximately 5 million stolen articles daily with a value of over $5,000.
In 1994 he presented a detailed plan and white paper on the redeployment of surplus (decommissioned) biomedical equipment from first world nations to developing second and third world African nations. In 2004 - 2005 he lobbied the governments of the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, armed with a petition of over 5 million signatories in order to convince these governments to utilize the technological resources of each country's intelligence services as an investigative aid in the apprehension of international child pornographers; this proposal was known as the "Ing Initiative."
In 2007, Dr. Ing conceptually created, founded and sponsored the Blessed Black Angels Initiative an international urban community project whose mission is the empowerment of Black Women of all ages through the provision of transitional scholarships and business grants. In 1998 he founded the East York Museum of Curiosities a traveling exhibit and mobile museum project themed in the 15th century featuring a selection of artifacts from his own personal collection of over 300 items.
In the Fall of 2010, Dr. Robert Ing assisted in sponsorship programs, and undertook joint NGO projects in the third world to rescue and support sexually exploited children in these nations. The projects offered included trauma centre, safe shelter, medical care, counselling, vocational training and safe reintegration initiatives.
