S&T is working on a millimeter wave technology for screening shoes as part of the larger Screening at Speed Program to improve detection of current and emerging threats to aviation and to improve the passenger experience in the airport.
Pursuant to the TSA Modernization Act (P.L. 115-254), signed into law on October 5, 2018, the report provides information on Mahan Air operations and U.S. security interests at international Last Point of Departure airports.
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.
DHS S&T has awarded $1,656,206.00 to Halo X-ray Technologies Ltd (HXT) in Nottingham, UK, to develop and implement an automatic threat resolution system for use with X-ray imaging of carry-on and checked baggage.
S&T is pursuing transformative research and development activities that support a future vision for increasing security effectiveness while dramatically reducing wait times and improving the overall passenger experience.
DHS S&T works closely with first responders, academia, research and development organizations, industry, innovators and venture capitalists to use science to help strengthen our first responders and the nation. Check out our infographic to learn more on how S&T is helping protect our homeland.
Beyond startup programs, university partnerships and prize competitions, there are still countless ways to promote public safety innovation. One of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate’s (S&T) most consequential efforts to do so has focused on giving the private sector legal incentive to continue developing and deploying large scale security technologies.
Do you ever wonder why you stand in line at the airport checkpoint, and what those machines are doing? Well, they are looking for, among other things, explosives.
DHS S&T awarded $189,863 today to iProov Ltd. of London, England, to improve the screening process for international passengers. This is the first award to an international company from S&T’s Silicon Valley Innovation Program.
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!
