DHS S&T Seeks Innovators to Collaborate on Smart Cities Technologies

DHS S&T issued a Request for Innovators (RFI) seeking to prototype, test and transition cutting-edge emergency response technologies.




Soft, Self-Healing Devices Mimic Biological Muscles, Point to Next Generation of Human-Like Robotics

A new class of soft, electrically activated devices is capable of mimicking the expansion and contraction of natural muscles. These devices, which can be constructed from a wide range of low-cost materials, are able to self-sense their movements and self-heal from electrical damage, representing a major advance in soft robotics.

DHS S&T has awarded 418 Intelligence Corporation of Herndon, Virginia $350,000 to develop a forecasting platform that will help critical infrastructure owners and system operators share and keep abreast of the latest developments in cybersecurity protection.



Current Speech Recognition Software Couldn't Analyze Apollo Mission Archives, So NASA Had Scientists Build a Better One


When they began their work, researchers discovered that the first thing they needed to do was to digitize the audio. Five years later, the team is completing its work, which has led to advances in technology to convert speech to text, analyze speakers and understand how people collaborated to accomplish the missions.
