DHS, industry look ahead

James St. Pierre and Albert J. Wavering, both of the National Institute of Standards and Technology, chat with Massoud Amin of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers.

The Homeland Security Department issued a challenge at a recent industry forum in Washington, during which it outlined what it needs from technology in the coming years.

The two-day event included discussions on the Support Anti-Terrorism by Fostering Effective Technologies (SAFETY) Act, border and transportation security, cybersecurity and other topics, implicitly inviting industry to help find the answers.
