News Release: DHS FY19 SBIR Solicitation Now Open

  • The new solicitation contains 10 topic descriptions from two DHS organizations, eight from the Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) and two from the Countering Weapons of Mass Destruction (CWMD) Office.

Written testimony of DNDO, OHA, and S&T for a House Homeland Security Subcommittee on Emergency Preparedness, Response, and Communications hearing titled “Examining the Department of Homeland Security’s Efforts to Counter Weapons of Mass Destruction”

U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Domestic Nuclear Detection Office (DNDO) Director Jim McDonnell, Office of Health Affairs (OHA) Acting Assistant Secretary Dave Fluty, and Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) Acting Under Secretary Bill Bryan address DHS’ work to bolster efforts to counter the threat of terrorist actors using weapons of mass destruction against the Homeland.

Advanced Technology Demonstration

The Advanced Technology Demonstration Program seeks to support late-stage, pre-acquisition research and development projects that target a gap in the Global Nuclear Detection Architecture or in national technical nuclear forensics.  These are projects that are not likely to be filled by others in the near term and have successfully completed an Exploratory Research Program or an equivalent demonstration.

Exploratory Research Program

The Domestic Nuclear Detection Office’s Exploratory Research (ER) program explores innovative, high risk, early stage applied research that will provide new capabilities to help counter the threat of nuclear terrorism. Research may focus on a specific technological “gap” in detection capabilities, investigate the improvement of existing capabilities, or support improvement in nuclear technical forensics capabilities.
