This unique four-part series highlights how S&T and its partners across government are mobilizing research and development (R&D) teams to reduce risks from natural and human-induced disasters; accelerating breakthrough discoveries; and helping the nation prepare against future threats and unknowns.
S&T's Virtual Whole-of-Government R&D Showcase Series 3 serves as a reminder of how important it is to invest in research and science to address those persistent and over-the-horizon threats to our nation.
This project guide introduces you to the distinct goals and objectives for the complementary SRMNI and Emergency Communications projects and provides an overview of the ongoing R&D of new and cutting-edge solutions. These solutions will help secure legacy and next-generation mobile network infrastructure and help protect the critical communications systems used by the nation’s first responders.
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), together with federal partners, have launched a new website to combat the threat of ransomware.

Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro N. Mayorkas released the following statement on the confirmation of Jen Easterly as Director of the DHS Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA)
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate’s (S&T) Secure and Resilient Mobile Network Infrastructure (SRMNI) and Emergency Communications Research and Development (R&D) Program is providing direct R&D support for critical Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) priorities related to its mission to secure and make resilient 5G infrastructure, mobility for government mission use, and emergency communications capabilities.
DHS’ Science and Technology Directorate’s (S&T) Mobile Security R&D Program has established the Secure and Resilient Mobile Network Infrastructure (SRMNI) project to address the threats and challenges to the nation’s mobile network infrastructure. Each of the nine R&D projects is being managed by S&T’s Office of Mission & Capability Support on behalf of CISA.
The Emergency Communications R&D Project is focused on researching and developing solutions that will enhance and improve the ability of first responders to manage disasters and emergencies with maximum effectiveness and efficiency.
Each project is being managed by S&T’s Office of Mission & Capability Support on behalf of CISA, which ensures federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial (FSLTT) agencies have the necessary plans, resources, and training to support resilient, operable, and advanced interoperable emergency communications.
