Innovation is the driving force behind the work of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) and engaging with industry is essential to delivering the best technology solutions to DHS’s end-users and operators. S&T’s Long Range Broad Agency Announcement (LRBAA) is a standing, open invitation to the scientific and technical communities to submit proposals for open topics that address priority homeland security needs.
The LRBAA Today webinar series is an opportunity for the innovation community to learn more about the Department’s research challenge areas, specific to LRBAA topics, and how to use the LRBAA program to work with S&T. During each webinar, viewers will hear about the work currently being pursued under the topic area and gain context for the solutions being sought.
