  • Center for Accelerating Operational Efficiency Fact Sheet

    The Center for Accelerating Operational Efficiency (CAOE) develops and applies advanced analytical tools and technologies to enhance planning, information sharing and real-time decision-making in homeland security operations. The Center also develops educational programs to meet current and future workforce needs across the homeland security enterprise in visual and data analytics, operations research and systems analysis, economic analysis, and risk science.

  • Coastal Resilience Center Fact Sheet

    The Coastal Resilience Center (CRC) conducts research and education to enhance the resilience of the nation’s people, infrastructure, economies, and the natural environment, to the impacts of coastal hazards such as floods and hurricanes. This includes developing new tools and methods to help communities mitigate, recover from, and adapt to natural hazard risks, including the effects of future trends. CRC also develops educational programs to meet current and future workforce needs across the homeland security enterprise in coastal and computational engineering, computer science and engineering, social science, coastal infrastructure, disaster science, and natural hazards resilience.

  • Soft-Target Engineering to Neutralize the Threat Reality Fact Sheet

    The Soft-Target Engineering to Neutralize the Threat Reality (SENTRY) is a nationwide consortium led by Northeastern University, which develops strategies and innovative solutions to secure environments that are easily accessible to large numbers of people—such as crowded spaces and transportation systems—from targeted attacks that inflict grave injury to human life and property. These environments often have limited security or protective measures, making them vulnerable to attack, which requires the development of next-generation tools and methodologies.
