Description
 
Conducting R&D on technologies for detecting, preventing, and mitigating terrorist threats is vital to enhancing the security of the nation. Since its creation, the Dept. of Homeland Security (DHS) has spent billions of dollars researching and developing technologies used to support its missions including securing the border, detecting nuclear devices, and screening airline passengers and baggage for explosives, among others. Within DHS, its Science & Tech. Directorate (S&T) conducts R&D and is the component responsible for coordinating R&D across the dept., but other components, such as the Coast Guard and the Domestic Nuclear Detection Office (DNDO), also conduct R&D to support their respective missions. This report identifies (1) how much DHS invests in R&D and the extent to which DHS has policies and guidance for defining R&D and overseeing R&D resources and efforts across the dept.; and (2) the extent to which R&D is coordinated within DHS to prevent overlap, fragmentation, or unnecessary duplication. Figures. This is a print on demand report.
