S&T’s research and development support prevention and protective strategies, as well as the coordinated surveillance and detection of chemical, biological and explosive threats.
Crucially important work is accomplished through deploying S&T’s advanced lab-based technical expertise and capabilities in research, development, test and evaluation.
Studies conducted by DHS S&T's National Biodefense Analysis and Countermeasures Center (NBACC) have demonstrated that high temperature (≥ 130°F) is detrimental to virus stability in saliva on nonporous surfaces.
S&T develops research-based, mission-driven resources for decision makers and frontline workers to contribute to the nation’s comprehensive COVID-19 response efforts.
Today, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) announced the grand prize winner of its $300,000 Hidden Signal Challenge.
