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, facilitate recovery from disasters, protect infrastructure, and improve the health of civilians.
Homeland Protection Groups
Emergency agencies around the world are using NICS to coordinate rapid and organized response to disasters.
The system can rapidly and discreetly detect threat items concealed under clothes or hidden in bags of people in crowded public spaces.
The prototype is enabling DHS to test technologies that can counter the threats posed by commercial drones.
