DHS/S&T/PIA-038 Next Generation First Responder Apex Program

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology (S&T) Directorate established the Next Generation First Responder (NGFR) Apex Program (Program), a research, development, testing, evaluation, (RDT&E) and standards program, adapting existing technologies, developing new capabilities, and working with the private sector to enhance capabilities for first responders across the nation. More than 60 individual RDT&E projects “align” to the NGFR Apex Program. Program activities include technology integration demonstrations and/or operational experimentations (OpEx) and the development of knowledge products, such as facts sheets and case studies. DHS S&T is conducting the NGFR Apex Program Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) because the Program involves the use of personally identifiable information (PII) as well as technologies that raise potential privacy concerns.
