Short documents with information about a particular issue or topic.
African Swine Fever (ASF) is a high-threat foreign animal disease that is highly transmissible and results in up to 100% mortality in swine.
The CAP fact sheet provides program overview and impacts.
DHS S&T partnered with five stakeholders from state and local governments to test and evaluate the low-cost IoT flood inundation sensors in their communities.
DHS S&T is working with Morphix Technologies to develop a simple, inexpensive, wearable smart chemical sensor badge that has high sensitivity and selectivity to multiple toxic industrial chemicals at trace (low parts per million or ppm) concentrations, and that triggers alarms at permissible exposure limits, short-term exposure limits and time weighted average concentrations.
Expansion of initial SARS-CoV-2 stability results, by the National Biodefense Analysis and Countermeasures Center (NBACC), was extended to include higher temperatures to estimated virus stability.
S&T has identified programmable multicookers with a sous vide function, or equivalent setting, as a suitable means to treat FFRs with moist heat at home.
DHS S&T performed laboratory studies to estimate the stability of SARS-CoV-2 in airborne particles representative of respiratory particles produced during breathing, talking or coughing.
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. These technology prototypes are operationally field tested by S&T’s National Urban Security Technology Laboratory (NUSTL).
The current model shows the effects of temperature and relative humidity on the virus while suspended in respiratory droplets, on surfaces.
Science &Technology Directorate (S&T) is rapidly publishing high-confidence guidance on COVID-19 to include applied-science studies and risk assessments on the virus.
