Soft Target Engineering to Neutralize the Threat Reality (SENTRY) is a DHS Center of Excellence led by Northeastern University.
Led by Northeastern University, SENTRY develops strategies and innovative solutions to secure soft targets and crowded places from targeted attacks that inflict grave injury to human life and property. These soft target environments, such as schools, surface transportation, sports arenas, places of worship, large outdoor events, and retail facilities, often have limited security or protective measures, making them vulnerable to attack. SENTRY is developing next-generation tools and methodologies to predict and mitigate these threats. A key aspect of the SENTRY strategy is the development of a real-time decision support system, a Virtual Sentry Framework, that can be used by the stakeholders of soft target venues and crowded places to help defeat attacks.
