Technology is a critical tool for improving interoperability that should meet the needs of practitioners on the front lines and should address regional needs, existing infrastructure, cost versus benefits, and sustainability. The resources below provide 5G, Internet of Things (IoT), and Smart Cities examples of the technology currently used in the public safety environment.
If you are a Fire & Rescue professional attending the Fire Department Instructors Conference in Indianapolis, mark your calendars to join S&T John Merrill and discuss how to “Make Firefighting Safer with Artificial Intelligence.” This discussion will be held in rooms 138-139 on , from to at the Indiana Convention Center & Lucas Oil stadium.
Five research organizations were awarded separate contracts totaling $11,511,565 to develop new methods to identify and attribute Network/Internet-scale Disruptive Events (NIDEs), the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) announced today.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) announced a $200,000 award today to Plurilock Security Solutions, Inc. to develop an identity management (IdM) platform to improve the security capabilities of smart devices, sensors and other devices that connect and operate across the cybersphere.
In addition to fostering IoT innovation, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) is investing in ways to ensure system security and privacy.
Internet of Things (IoT) continues to grow as the number of wearable, home and workplace devices increase. Although these devices may improve our productivity, it’s important to remember that these devices are power computers. DHS S&T's Cyber Security Division Program Manager Chase Garwood shares how you can protect your smart devices.
The DHS S&T is working to make sure telephony denial of service attacks cannot disrupt critical phone systems.
Today, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) issued a set of “Strategic Principles for Securing the Internet of Things (IoT), Version 1.0.” These principles highlight approaches and suggested practices to fortify the security of the IoT and will equip stakeholders to make responsible and risk-based security decisions as they design, manufacture, and use internet-connected devices and systems.
Internet of Things (IoT) Architecture Engineering Report pilot explores the emerging IoT enabled technologies as a means to provide first responders with better situational awareness and communications. Evolving IoT technologies now make it possible to establish basic network connectivity automatically with these sensors as soon as they are deployed.
Recent panel discussed what “Internet of Things” means for the federal government and how it can add to its mission.
