To ensure bomb techs are on the cutting edge of technology as they address evolving threats, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) created the Response and Defeat Operations Support (REDOPS) program. REDOPS connects the 466 bomb squads of varying sizes and budgets across the country with the tools and information they need to perform their duties better, faster and more safely.
The Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) is funding Higher Dimension Materials, Inc. (HDM), and the North Carolina State University Textile Protect and Comfort Center (TPACC) to identify, test and select the most appropriate fabric and supporting materials to incorporate into an enhanced glove design.
This document serves as a source of Identity, Credential, and Access Management (ICAM) Implementation Guides resulting from the evaluation of publicly available documents and the implementation of ICAM-enabled systems in a sandbox.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) will attend the APCO 2018 Annual Conference and Expo August 5 – 8 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Our program managers will showcase some of the latest technology helping public safety overcome cybersecurity threats and analyze large amounts of data. If you’ll be at the conference, stop by booth #1149 to meet with our experts, or attend one of our panel sessions.
The goal of this project is to identify the characteristics of communities where persons indicted under terrorism related charges lived, planned, and prepared prior to carrying out terrorist attacks. Are there potential markers that can be identified to assist in intervention efforts before violence occurs?
he U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) has partnered with several public safety agencies from the Harris County, Texas, area for the Next Generation First Responder (NGFR) – Harris County Operational Experimentation (OpEx) set for December 2018.
Wildland firefighters are exposed to many of the same naturally occurring respiratory hazards as structural firefighters: the myriad byproducts of wood pyrolysis and combustion, including carbon monoxide (CO), acrolein, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, aldehydes and ketones and acid gases.
This report includes a brief review of past social science research on improvised explosive devices (IEDs) followed by a series of focused observations resulting from data collection and analysis efforts.
America’s response to terrorism has changed dramatically over the past thirty years. Changes have included everything from the way in which terrorism is portrayed politically, to the manner in which terrorists are investigated, prosecuted, and punished.
Analyses of two past cases—efforts to counter eco-terrorists and violent Puerto Rican nationalists—demonstrate that law enforcement can have success in this role when agencies and individuals involved are willing and able to fully collaborate with colleagues, have access to an ongoing stream of intelligence and data, and apply innovative techniques for analyzing those data. These historical cases can provide important insights for today’s efforts to address persistent and emerging threats.
