The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced the establishment of the Cyber Safety Review Board (CSRB), as directed in President Biden’s Executive Order 14028 on Improving the Nation’s Cybersecurity. The CSRB is an unprecedented public-private initiative that will bring together government and industry leaders to elevate our nation’s cybersecurity.
In the Deconstructing SBIR webinar series, DHS’s Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Program team breaks down particulars of the program and highlights opportunities for small businesses to work with S&T.
This success story highlights the DHS SBIR company Polestar Technologies, Inc., of Needham Heights, Massachusetts, which developed a portable system for stand-off detection of concealed explosives to detect and identify different types of explosives.
The new approach simplifies the application process, more clearly defines homeland security needs, and increases communication throughout the process. Overall, S&T reduced the time from submission to award by more than five months.
