The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) must rapidly identify and develop technologies to counter emerging threats. Through the engagement of, and partnership with first responders and the emergency preparedness and response community at every state, and at the local, state, tribal and federal level, the DHS Science & Technology (S&T) First Responders Group (FRG) pursues a better understanding of the response community’s needs and requirements, provides technical assistance and develops innovative solutions to the most pressing challenges faced during day-to-day and large-scale emergencies. DHS’s Silicon Valley Innovation Program (SVIP) launched the Innovation Other Transaction Solicitation (OTS) HSHQDC-16-R-B0005 in December last year. The OTS Innovation framework ​​engages early stage ​start-ups through ​targeted ​non-dilutive ​funding ​and ​provides ​opportunities ​ for ​operational ​testing ​and ​market access. ​The SVIP hopes ​​to ​rapidly expand the ​commercial ​development ​roadmaps ​​to ​include ​homeland ​security ​ solutions by ​incentivizing ​product ​developers.

SVIP in partnership with FRG released three topic calls under the Innovation OTS:

The purpose of this Industry Day is to:
1. Describe the Silicon Valley Innovation Program to startups
2. Describe the homeland security challenges, use case and technical need for these topics
3. Show you how to apply for funding
