IoT World 2022

Meet with S&T in booth #161

Join us on Nov. 2 & 3 from 1:45-2:45 p.m. CT to learn about our innovation funding and collaboration opportunities.

Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning (AI/ML) technology connects the virtual and real worlds to bring about exciting new possibilities. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) is investing in ways to ensure the Department’s security needs are addressed. From November 2-3, S&T will attend IoT World in Austin, TX, to engage innovators, provide information on AI/ML security needs, and discuss opportunities for public-private partnerships.

Booth Location and Hours

S&T’s experts and staff will be in booth #161 on November 2 & 3 from 1:45-2:45 p.m. CT each day for a special presentation on our innovation funding and collaboration opportunities, including:

  • Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Program
  • Long Range Broad Agency Announcement (LRBAA)
  • Homeland Security Startup Studio (HSSS)
  • Silicon Valley Innovation Program (SVIP) & AI/ML Efforts

You’ll also hear from S&T SVIP performer, Lauretta AI, on their efforts to adapt commercially available behavior recognition systems, which use artificial intelligence (AI) technology, to anonymously monitor passengers, their personal items, and carry-on luggage for future enhancements to the Transportation Security Administration’s airport security screening process.

Have questions on what it’s like to work with government? This is a great opportunity to speak directly with staff who can provide insight on S&T’s ongoing and upcoming efforts to develop new capabilities that support DHS priorities. We will be available during the expo hours:

  • November 2, 10:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. CT
