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.
We recently initiated the Predict, Assess Risk, Identify (and Mitigate) Disruptive Internet-scale Network Events program, which funds research to develop innovative technologies that will reveal more about Network/internet-scale disruptive events (NIDEs). NIDEs may cause a loss or degradation of network (not necessarily internet) service and often follow natural disasters, geo-political events or the mass scale re-routing of internet traffic.
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 examples of communications resiliency
