An important part of the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) mission is to develop, implement, improve-upon, and ensure the effectiveness of cutting-edge screening equipment and protocols that help protect the traveling public.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) awarded $199,536 Phase 1 funding to Analytical AI of Birmingham, Alabama.
S&T’s Immersive Imaging System was recognized at the recent annual R&D 100 Conference among the 100 most exceptional innovations in science and technology from 2018.
The Department of Homeland (DHS) Security Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) is heading to South by Southwest (SXSW) to discuss a potential new proving ground for smart city technology – airports. These travel hubs move massive numbers of people and goods while ensuring safety and security, so they’re a natural testbed for technologies that could improve city resilience. If you’re attending SXSW and work on security or smart city technology, we encourage you to join this session and help S&T build a more resilient future!
Recently, CAVM partnered with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and U.S. Army Aberdeen Test Center (ATC) to develop a reusable Aircraft Explosive Testing Simulator that facilitates the explosive testing of new generation commercial aircraft.
S&T’s Program Executive Office for Unmanned Aircraft Systems (PEO UAS), working with component counterparts, is developing an approach to evaluate Countering Unmanned Aerial Systems (CUAS) solutions to inform acquisition and utilization decisions based on the needs and requirements of specific DHS components.
PATT will contain a “sensored” layer capable of measuring the amount of pressure applied to various areas of the mannequin during a standardized pat-down procedure.
Among the many tasks assigned to Transportation Security Administration (TSA) Transportation Security Officers (TSOs), they must screen every bag boarding commercial aircraft within the United States.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) is instrumental in developing programs for multiple DHS components and first responders through collaborative technology.
The TSA Administrator and I both appreciate the recent support we have received from Congress to aggressively address increased air travel and reduce wait times at TSA screening points in U.S. airports. In the face of increased air travel volume, we will not compromise aviation security. We are quickly and aggressively surging resources to keep travelers moving through airports, and to keep them safe.
