The DHS Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) First Responder Technologies (R-Tech) program provides rapid technology solutions that address high-priority first responder capability gaps. R-Tech works with responders at every step and engages with industry, academia, national laboratories and the innovation community to ensure technology needs are met and exceeded.
Research and Development
DHS S&T awarded a total of $5,643,466 across seven organizations to develop new tools to arm researchers with the latest insight and an increased collection of cybersecurity incident data to understand and counter cyberattacks.
U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) Homeland Security Advanced Research Project Agency Explosives Division Surface Transportation Explosive Threat Detection Program Manager Don Roberts addresses S&T Explosive Division’s close working relationship with TSA’s Intermodal Division and the support it provides to surface transportation agencies in an effort to ensure the security of the nation’s transportation systems.
Cybersecurity is a multidimensional problem that demands multidisciplinary attention. The Cyber Risk Economics (CYRIE) program supports advancement of the business, legal, technical, and behavioral aspects of the economics of cyber threats, vulnerabilities, and controls.
Network Measurement Science is the efficient and principled application of scientific principles to network measurement. This project will develop innovative technologies to provide a system and capability to identify, classify, report, predict, provide attribution and potentially mitigate network/internet disruptive events (NIDEs).
DHS S&T works closely with border and immigration officials to understand how technology can help support their missions and overcome challenges.
We partner with a host of academic, national laboratory and research organizations across the nation to address specific homeland security topics and threats.
DHS S&T assists operators by helping them define and understand their requirements and the technology's performance capabilities.
The Critical Infrastructure Design and Adaptive Resilient Systems (CIDARS) project develops the technical basis and analytical tools needed to support cross-sector risk assessment and identifies standards of practice to support the expanded use of risk methodologies for cyber and physical systems and resource planning.
DHS S&T has awarded a $750,000 contract to El Segundo, California-based InferLink Corporation to develop an advanced search functionality for the Information Marketplace for Policy and Analysis of Cyber-risk & Trust (IMPACT) cybersecurity research portal.
