Developing technology to keep the nation safe
A vital mission of the U.S. government is to secure the nation from the many threats it faces. We support this mission by assessing, prototyping, and deploying innovative technology that helps reduce the nation's vulnerability to terrorism, secure transportation systems, and protect critical infrastructure.
