DHS/S&T/PIA-021 Cell All


The Cell All project is a research, development, testing and evaluation effort funded by the Homeland Security Advanced Research Projects Agency (HSARPA) in the Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate (DHS S&T). Cell All is an environmental surveillance system that uses a typical cell phone as a platform for a sensor system to detect harmful chemical substances and transmit critical information, including location data, to first responder and other related monitoring agencies. With the sensors suite developed and fitted on a cell phone, S&T will conduct a demonstration of the prototype system using research-owned devices. While no personally identifiable information will be collected during the demonstration, S&T is conducting a PIA to address the privacy impact of the transmission of location data using the prototype.
