S&T's MQL is the consolidation of recent, accurate COVID-19 information that is regularly updated with the latest results and data relevant to weathering the pandemic.
DHS S&T's SBIR Program awards $1 million to California-based small business InferLink Corporation to develop collaborative peer-to-peer tool for sharing cybersecurity information.
In response to New York State implementing the Driver’s License Access and Privacy Act (Green Light Law), Acting Secretary Chad F. Wolf announced New York residents will no longer be eligible to apply for or renew their enrollment in certain Trusted Traveler Programs (TTP) like Global Entry. The law prohibits the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) from sharing information with U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), preventing DHS from fully vetting New York residents.
Newly updated with optional scenarios and expanded question sets, the ISAT is a web-based self-assessment tool that helps public safety agencies understand their current information sharing capabilities and gaps.
In an emergency, it is vital that first responders are able to communicate and share information, regardless of the agency they represent. Yet, interoperability and information integration remain a challenge when it comes to real-time, multi-agency coordination.
To address this challenge, the Center for Visualization and Data Analytics (CVADA) at Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey, a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology (S&T) Center of Excellence, developed the Mobile Computing Application Platform (MCAP) in partnership with the U.S. Army Tank Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center.
The Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate is supporting the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) 2018-2022 Strategic Plan and its vision of a prepared and resilient nation. This effort includes partnering with key stakeholders for FEMA’s Shaken Fury 2019 exercise, which simulates the response and recovery to a 7.7 magnitude earthquake scenario near Memphis, Tennessee.
