The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) provides tools, technologies, and knowledge to help responders do their jobs safely and effectively. S&T programs fulfill the crucial mission of building resilience among our communities while protecting the homeland.
S&T is pleased to connect with industry and academia on October 9-13, 2022, at the 242nd ECS Meeting to exchange R&D updates and discuss opportunities for collaboration. S&T's exhibit space will be located in Booth #105.
This year S&T is proud to introduce its latest R&D efforts to enhance resilience, including sensors that provide early detection of fires to enable quick response. We will also highlight a suite of wearable sensors as personal protective equipment that enables responders on the scene to be aware of potential hazard exposure and to take appropriate safety precautions.
Join our S&T experts to learn about:
- S&T investments and their impacts: how we conduct R&D that protects communities and saves lives.
- New and emerging technologies that we can apply towards addressing our mission needs.
- S&T's broad capability needs and how to work with us.
