Science and Technology

When new technologies become available, our role at the Science and Technology Directorate is to understand how the Homeland Security Enterprise can use these technologies safely as well as any possible threats related to the new tech. We are also playing a key policy development role for UAS. We are the DHS-designated leader of the interagency community addressing nefarious UAS use, and co-lead for the National Security Council’s technology and response work groups. On the flip side of nefarious use, we know UAS can help the security landscape and the work we do at DHS and across the HSE. We know this technology can be game changing for our operational components within the Department. S&T is helping to understand how UAS can be a force multiplier, allowing agents and officers to remain at a safe distance while the technology helps gather information. On May 19, we’ll continue to talk standards at a meeting sponsored by the American National Standards Institute to explore establishing a new ANSI collaborative on UAS. As a Directorate and a Department, we are making great progress on this very important issue for our operators to use this technology and to be prepared to counter the possible threats it brings.
