Headed to the Consumer Electronics Show (CES)? Connect With US!
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) will be speaking and exhibiting at CES Las Vegas, Jan. 6-10, 2020.
CES 2020, the annual trade show owned and produced by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA)®, will give government leaders a firsthand look at new technologies and techniques for strengthening resiliency — from evacuation planning and transportation security to flood control, infrastructure protection and more.
DHS will be at CES 2020 to expand new approaches to problem solving and identify technology solutions to enhance mission capabilities. We look forward to connecting with you to discuss business opportunities for developing technologies that save lives and perspectives on where technology solutions are needed to make impacts that drive-down risks and improve efficiencies in mission areas of travel security, disaster preparedness, response and recovery, and critical infrastructure resilience.
Visit DHS at the Westgate Las Vegas, Booth #501 – Jan. 7-10
At CES 2020, the Westgate Expo is the hub for resilience and smart cities. Through the deployment of smart technologies, including sensors, devices and analytics, communities now have more tools to improve services, reduce costs and serve as living labs for innovative growth.
As government and industry invest in more technologies, they are looking for ways to apply new solutions to build resilience in areas like evacuations, floods, active shooter, fires and hurricanes, while also investing in the digitization of critical infrastructure and continuity of commerce.
The DHS Exhibit Booth, #501, at the Westgate Las Vegas, will showcase technologies developed by startup partners working with the DHS Silicon Valley Innovation Program (SVIP)and research underway by the DHS Academic Center of Excellence Critical Infrastructure Resilience Institute, which is improving the security and resilience of next-generation critical infrastructure, including:
- Next-Generation Mobile Communications Infrastructure: The introduction and deployment of 5G wireless technology will usher in a whole new wave of wireless and mobile applications. This will include significant enhancements to our nation’s wireless emergency alert system and 9-1-1 emergency response systems. Learn what DHS is doing now to strengthen the security and resilience of these life-critical systems for the future.
- DHS U.S. Customs and Border Protection will demonstrate their biometric exit facial recognition technology for international travel. Currently CBP is using this biometric facial technology with various airlines and airports throughout the country. CBP is implementing innovative ways to use biometric technology to provide not only better enforcement, but a better experience for travelers.
DHS plans to highlight these themes at booth #501 in the Resilience Marketplace at CES 2020.
