Snapshot: Working with NASA to Secure Drone Traffic

NASA, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and industry have partnered to develop a capability to manage national airspace drone traffic in the future, called the Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Traffic Management (UTM) infrastructure, rolling out in phases over time.

Snapshot: Detecting Drones Through Machine Learning, Cameras

Combined with machine learning, however, a camera can tell a different story. Today, this budding technology is helping the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) and Sandia National Laboratories create more precise drone detection capability through visuals alone.

Use of Unmanned Aircraft Systems During Hurricane Florence Response and Recovery Operations

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is warning drone owners and operators they may face significant fines if they interfere with emergency response operations in the areas affected by Hurricane Florence. Many aircraft that are conducting life-saving missions and other critical response and recovery efforts are likely to be flying at low altitudes over areas affected by the storm. Flying a drone without authorization in or near the disaster area may unintentionally disrupt rescue operations and violate federal, state, or local laws and ordinances, even if a Temporary Flight Restriction (TFR) is not in place. Allow first responders to save lives and property without interference.

News Release: S&T Partners with New Smart City Innovators

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) and its research and development partners today selected 13 U.S. and international companies to develop smart cities technologies to assist public safety.

Snapshot: C-UAS in Urban Environments

Given their rapid technology advancement and proliferation, the public safety and homeland security communities must address the fact that drones can be used nefariously or maliciously to hurt people, disrupt activities and damage infrastructure.

Snapshot: Testing and Training with Drones

DHS S&T is preparing to integrate drones in DHS’ and other federal agencies’ missions by providing accessible demonstration sites for land- and maritime-based operations.

S&T Air Based Technologies Fact Sheet

The Air Based Technologies program is a multi-year effort within the Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate that will improve the homeland security community’s awareness, understanding and utilization of airborne sensor systems and platforms for border security and public safety missions.

S&T FRG NGFR Case Study Video Services

This study identifies and explains the technologies used in the TechEx and presents a case study for public safety agencies as an example of how to implement video sharing systems in rural areas to improve officer safety and resource management.
