What Happens in Vegas? Science and Technology.

Release Date: January 2, 2024

A message to all innovators on what to expect from S&T at the 2024 Consumer Electronics Show.

We're in a period of remarkable change. Technologies are evolving faster every day, which poses constant challenges and opportunities for enhancing our nation’s security. Increasingly, the Science and Technology Directorate’s (S&T) customers look to us to help identify, procure and implement new technologies that enhance security and improve our response to changing threat environments. And there’s no place better for us to connect with innovators from around the world and become energized by new ideas and cutting-edge technologies than the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) next week in Las Vegas.

This is not a time for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to hold back. We are participating in CES to discuss the current state of S&T’s research and development efforts and demonstrate how the innovators that are converging upon CES can help advance our mission through exciting partnership opportunities. S&T seeks to embrace and harness commercial advances like artificial intelligence to reduce risk and allow homeland security operators, including first responders, to work more efficiently and effectively.

Knowing that the future is far more ambiguous than it was just five years ago, S&T is excited to once again be part of the innovation conversation. As we have in years past at CES, the S&T team has a robust schedule of presentations and demonstrations planned from our exhibit booth in Eureka Park—the heart of the CES startup community. By surrounding ourselves with so many creative thinkers from public and private, domestic and international organizations, S&T gains visibility into new solutions and prepares for future research investments. CES offers us a lens for eyeing where next-generation technologies are headed and who is leading the development and commercialization. Exposure to all the ideas and latest developments in technology will help us to better understand how emerging tech can fulfill the needs of the Department’s broad mission areas.

Because CES brings together global startups, entrepreneurs, and leaders from business and government, S&T looks forward to conversations with new and existing international partners about common challenges and advancing mutual goals. We continue to cultivate relationships with like-minded scientific and technological leaders who join us in pushing new thinking and creating new opportunities to make our world more secure.

If you’ll also be at CES, let’s connect and find ways to work together on accelerating innovation. And we’ll show you how S&T is applying state-of-the-art science and technology into some of the most effective solutions for keeping the country safe and secure.

Visit S&T’s exhibit booth # 61700 at Eureka Park within the Venetian Expo, where our showcased technologies will include collaborations with startup partners working with our Small Business Innovation Research and Silicon Valley Innovation Programs. We will host a series of tech talks at the booth on everything from the future of aviation security with S&T’s Transportation Security Laboratory to improving first responder safety, and we will also lay out our Innovation, Research, and Development investment strategy through 2030.

You’ll also find DHS and S&T conducting outreach in the government pavilion sponsored by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, also located in the Eureka Park startup community in the Venetian Expo. Come see us there at booth #61401.
