Operational Field Assessment Fact Sheet


DHS S&T works closely with the nation’s emergency response community to identify and prioritize mission capability gaps and to facilitate the rapid development of critical solutions to address responders’ everyday technology needs. As this rapid development nears completion, S&T's National Urban Security Technology Laboratory (NUSTL) conducts an Operational Field Assessment (OFA) to test the capability and suitability of a prototype technology, to verify and document that development goals were met, and to identify opportunities for improvement prior to commercialization. This Fact Sheet provides an overview of NUSTL's OFA Management for DHS S&T.
