Bomb robots are used to inspect and manipulate suspect packages or explosives and are controlled by operators from a safe standoff distance. DHS S&T is working with Honeybee Robotics to develop the Robotic Modular Stereoscopic Retrofit (MSR) System.
DHS S&T released an RFI seeking new and emerging technologies that first responders can experiment with and test in a realistic, urban setting at Urban OpEx 2022.
DHS S&T’s NUSTL, in collaboration with Metro-North Commuter Railroad Company (MNR), conducted a semi-virtual technology demonstration of the TRX NEON® Personnel Location Tracker in Grand Central Terminal (GCT). The TRX NEON Personnel Tracker can provide location data that could complement data provided by mobile environmental sensors, enabling the accurate mapping of survey results to specific locations throughout GCT. NUSTL, in conjunction with MNR, facilitated a demonstration of the technology to determine its feasibility in supporting an emergency preparedness environmental survey.
DHS S&T released a RFI seeking effective respiratory protection for wildland firefighters to be considered for inclusion in a market survey being conducted by S&T’s NUSTL in collaboration with the Department of Energy’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory.
DHS S&T released a RFI seeking information on commercially available body cameras that feature the ability to automatically begin recording based on sensors triggered by surrounding events.
Two inventors from S&T laboratory ’s National Urban Security Technology Laboratory (NUSTL) were awarded a patent for new emergency responder technology.
First responders across the nation are participating in a September 8 training exercise to hone their skills for responding to a radiation emergency.
