The Department of Homeland Security has unveiled an industry guide that outlines its science and technology directorate’s requirements, focus areas and potential collaboration opportunities with members of the industry.
William Bryan, acting under secretary for science and technology at DHS, wrote in a blog post published Wednesday the guide will help interested parties gain input on S&T’s specific needs and sought after technology platforms.
“It describes tools for partnering with us, online resources for more information, and ways to engage directly with us,” said Bryan.
He noted that the use of technological developments from the private sector can aid personnel on the front lines during homeland security operations.
Bryan added that the guide will also help S&T develop new or adapt current technical products, discover current efforts within industry communities and transition capabilities that homeland security operators can acquire in the commercial market.
