Rutgers Expert Available to Discuss Lessons from 9/11 in U.S. Response to COVID-19Rutgers University-New Brunswick
LLNL and Argon Electronics (UK) Ltd. have reached a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement that will facilitate the development of an ultra-realistic radiation simulator tool for first responders.
DHS S&T announced today the selection of the University of Nebraska Omaha to lead a consortium of U.S. academic institutions and other partners for a new COE for TPCR.
S&T’s team of experts has traveled all over the nation to bring REDDI to state and local law enforcement agencies. REDDI is a two-day event that includes odor recognition trials and operationally relevant scenarios.
Body armor for U.S. soldiers are heavy, cumbersome, and way above the desired aerial density, which limits their mobility and physical performance. FAU scientists expect to improve performance of military helmets and body armor using hybridized nanocomposite fibers. Like something out of the movie “Iron Man,” this new fiber will to lead to fast dissipation, greater energy absorption and ballistic performance. Bullet-proof armor performance is heavily dependent on the base material properties, which have changed little in recent years.
Radioactive materials are a critical tool in a number of industrial applications particularly oil and gas drilling and welding. While these sources are safe and well-regulated for their intended use; if lost or stolen the materials could be used by terrorists to make dirty bombs. The Department of Energy’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory developed and licensed a technology system to keep track of and secure radiological material on the road or at job sites.
In CFR’s annual Preventive Priorities Survey, U.S. foreign policy experts assess the likelihood and impact of thirty potential conflicts that could emerge or escalate in the coming year.
An analysis by a Vanderbilt economist who specializes in the valuation of fatality risks finds that the post-9/11 wars may have resulted in more than twice as many indirect deaths back home as were lost in battle, due to the diversion of war costs from the U.S. economy and the subsequent impact on the nation’s health.
