Canada-U.S. Enhanced Resiliency Experiment (CAUSE) Fact Sheet


Border region stakeholders have limited ability to communicate, share information, and collaborate during critical incidents due to disparate systems and procedures and the lack of interagency agreements. The Canada-U.S. Enhanced Resiliency Experiment (CAUSE) is a multi-year series of joint experiments to demonstrate how voice and data communications interoperability greatly enhance regional and cross border operations and resiliency.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate and Defense Research and Development Canada’s Centre for Security Science co-sponsor CAUSE.
