Share this:
Published: 12 May 2017

This issue of Homeland Security TOE covers recent developments in robotics, sensor platforms, block chain, and artificial intelligence for homeland security. Innovations profiled include collaborative robots for surveillance application, airborne sensor platform for border surveillance, an organic CMOS sensor capable of controlling NIR light sensitivity, and a blockchain technology to identify counterfeit products. 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: Collaborative robots, airborne sensor platform, CMOS, blockchain, artificial intelligence, first responder, user authentication
