DHS Science and Technology Directorate's (S&T's) SCITI Labs initiative leverages cutting-edge Smart City and Internet of Things (IoT) technologies to enhance public safety in communities across the country.
Working closely with S&T, operational personnel from Immigration and Customs Enforcement – Homeland Security Investigations (ICE-HSI), and the manufacturer of a low-light, high-definition video camera manufacturer, Digital Barriers developed a new Television Interface (TVI) Encoder to meet the requirements of the law enforcement community.
On November 9, The Washington Post published “DHS Bid to Go Digital Falls Flat,” a story on the digitization program launched by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) in 2006.

Thanks to efforts to modernize our immigration services, we have provided a fresh start to the program. It is now within cost and on schedule.
