Published: 10 Feb 2017

This issue of Homeland Security TOE profiles advancements in first responder technologies for homeland security applications, such as a software platform for personnel tracking in real time, a mobile application, a vehicle to vehicle notification platform for emergency situations, an augmented reality-based situational awareness system, a wearable technology, weapons detection, a wireless sensing device, and a nanosensor for chemical detection. The Homeland Security TechVision Opportunity Engine (TOE) captures global innovations and developments related to homeland security on a monthly basis. Technologies enabling security segments, including incident management, border security, CBRNE, disaster management, cybersecurity, first responders, critical infrastructure protection, maritime security, food security, personal protective equipment, and airport security are captured in this TOE. The need for low power, smaller, lighter sensors with enhanced performance attributes and minimal false alarms is driving innovations in the sensors space. The Sensors and Control cluster covers innovations pertaining to technologies such as wireless sensors and networks, energy harvesting, haptics and touch, MEMS and nanosensors, terahertz, ubiquitous/smart sensors, CBRNE, quantified-self, sensor fusion, M2M communications, and drones. Keywords: First responder technologies, nanosensor, wireless sensor, handheld device, augmented reality, wearable for assistance, radio frequency, HAAS Alert
