Your Technology Can Help Secure the Homeland
S&T works with diverse partners from across the government, industry, academia, laboratories and even around the world. We also build new networks with creative problem solvers — start-ups, incubators and accelerators — to find solutions. These partners help us experiment, find emerging technologies, and commercialize technologies—all with the goal of finding better ways to protect the homeland from evolving threats. We want you to be part of the solution. Our Industry Guide lays out DHS technology needs, describes S&T’s technical focus areas, and identifies opportunities and tools for industry to work with us.
We developed the S&T Innovation Strategy to guide our efforts to find and advance technology innovation for homeland security.
