The U.S. Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate’s First Responder Technologies Division initiated a project with the goal of enhancing roadway safety for first responders. Applied Research Associates, Inc. (ARA) developed the Automated Driver and Responder Alert System (ADRAS) prototype to assist in reaching this goal.
The Terrorism and Extremist Violence in the United States (TEVUS) Database addresses the lack of publically available, reliable data about the incidents of terrorism and violent extremism in the United States by bringing together four open-source data sets developed by START and affiliated consortium researchers.
Technology innovators are invited to an industry Stakeholder Summit, August 9 in Washington, DC, to learn about the highest priority needs of more than 7.5 million first responders in the global market.
The Stakeholder Summit will center around working and collaborating with the homeland security industrial base to provide critical information on high priority capability gaps in the global first responder marke
DHS S&T has directed Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (JHU/APL) to implement a synthesis study to identify and summarize existing body worn cameras (BWC)-related research, specifically that which involves law enforcement personnel perceptions of an incident/event to compare with data/video acquired from BWC devices.
DHS S&T works closely with first responders, academia, research and development organizations, industry, innovators and venture capitalists to use science to help strengthen our first responders and the nation. Check out our infographic to learn more on how S&T is helping protect our homeland.
This report documents the Advanced Multi-threat Base Ensemble for Responders (AMBER) research conducted by the Textile Protection and Comfort Center (T-PACC) within the College of Textiles at North Carolina State University (NC State) between September 2014 and December 2017. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) sponsored T-PACC to develop an advanced multi-threat garment for first responders.
