Latest news and updates
ONL provides a network of laboratory capabilities to support the homeland security mission. This network includes laboratories that provide technical expertise, infrastructure, and core capabilities in the areas of chemical, biological, radiological, animal disease, explosives and contraband detection and mitigation, as well as first responder focus areas. ONL also facilitates access to auxiliary lab capabilities and the DOE National Laboratory.
5 in-house laboratories
ONL capabilities are spread across five states (AL, FL, MD, NJ and NY.) These laboratories and sites are national assets to DHS operational components and partners, and anchor a science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) presence in the areas in which they reside. Whether the mission need requires applied research supporting requirements definition, threat characterization, detection, mitigation or response, S&T’s lab network provides technologies and knowledge to help prevent terrorism, secure the homeland, and strengthen national preparedness and resilience.
