National Urban Security Technology Laboratory (NUSTL) Annual Report


The National Urban Security Technology Laboratory (NUSTL) celebrates another exceptional year in which it delivered on its mission to test, evaluate and analyze homeland security capabilities, while serving as a technical authority to the first responders protecting our cities. NUSTL’s 2014 Annual Report details its accomplishments and recognizes our staff that made such accomplishments possible.

Some of NUSTL’s most notable achievements in 2014 included:

  • Reaching a performance testing and evaluation milestone on testing 10,000 radiation detectors that are being used by law enforcement in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.
  • Conducting operational field assessments on cutting edge first responder technologies, such as structural firefighting gloves for firefighters.
  • Publishing 18 technical reports on homeland security technologies that will aid the first responder community’s technology acquisition decisions.

In addition, NUSTL also expanded its Radiological/Nuclear Response and Recovery (RNRR) Research and Development (R&D) portfolio by initiating six new projects that aim to identify gaps in training, provide a transportation hub with the capability to detect the presence of radiation and initiate the development of a handbook that details guidance and field operational job tools.
