The growing concern for homeland security has amplified the importance of security, safety and privacy in our daily lives. Accordingly, security technologies are receiving heightened attention by researchers, government agencies, the military, manufacturers, and end users. An increase in R&D funding, venture capital and investments in security infrastructures have catapulted the field and turned it into a major growth area.
Detection technologies, in particular, are evolving rapidly, as are identity control and encryption systems.
This subscription uncovers and evaluates emerging technological developments as they relate to homeland security. In this subscription, we assess important new equipment, systems, applications, markets, companies, and technologies in the field. We also bring you hard-to-find information on new projects, funding, spending, and contact information for key industry participants.
This subscription concentrates on the science, technology, applications, and markets for homeland security systems. The recent search for weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, battlefield surveillance for chemical and biological hazards, and scares of "white powder" in postal centers and airports illustrate the need for a better understanding of the weapons of mass destruction detection process and equipment. These events also produce opportunities for researchers, developers, manufacturers, and users of technological systems.
A new issue of Homeland Security Alert is available every month. Each monthly issue profiles and assesses a different security technology sector. Each issue also provides a section on homeland security spending. We expose where funds are going and identify what developers and manufacturers are doing with them.
The subscription is must-reading for anyone operating in this growth sector.
