S&T and DRDC CSS conducted an experiment with S&T’s AUDREY, a human-like reasoning system, to determine if AUDREY can perform data fusion, and provide tailored situational awareness information to the paramedic.
S&T will facilitate a demonstration of integrated emergency response technologies during a simulated earthquake and HAZMAT scenario at Legion Field stadium in Birmingham, Alabama.
Radio frequency detection, spectrum analysis, and direction finding equipment detect, identify and analyze radio frequency signals from radios, cellular devices, GPS, Wi-Fi, and other emitting devices. These devices can be used to identify transmissions from suspicious or threatening sources, including interference that may be blocking or damaging first responder communications.
Small unmanned aircraft systems (sUAS)—systems whose gross take-off weight is less than 55 pounds—offer tremendous potential for emergency responders supporting public safety missions, allowing responders to carry out missions at a fraction of the cost of a manned aerial response, while keeping them out of personal danger. These systems also offer opportunities to perform missions impossible for manned vehicles, such as exploring the inside of buildings or tunnels.
The DHS SBIR program will engage with small businesses in the research and development domain Aug. 12–16, 2019, as part of the Southwest leg of the National SBIR 2019 Road Tour.
TIES are a series of nation-wide collaborative events designed to engage, develop and foster relationships while educating innovator communities about DHS’ vast mission, homeland security challenges, and specific component operational needs.
S&T—in collaboration with FEMA, USFA, and other key stakeholder experts—determined WUI incidents and life-saving functions as the optimal areas for S&T to explore technology innovation.
Securing the global supply chain, while ensuring its smooth functioning, is essential to U.S. national security. S&T and Israel’s Ministry of Public Security teamed up to tackle that issue through the Low Cost Disposable Electronic Seals Pilot.
DHS SBIR program encourages innovative U.S. small businesses with less than 500 employees to develop new technologies in support of homeland security needs.
Today, DHS S&T announced three finalists for the first stage of the $250,000 Escape Respirator Challenge.
