DHS S&T, Israeli Gov’t to Fund Homeland Security Tech R&D Program

1 min read

The U.S. and Israel’s Binational Industrial Research and Development Foundation will award a maximum of $1M for projects that can provide homeland security technology in six key areas, the Department of Homeland Security said Wednesday.

The initiative, funded by the Israeli Ministry of Public Security and the DHS Science and Technology Directorate, will receive up to 50 percent of the joint research and development budget.

Participants must submit proposals that address areas such as first responder technologies, border security, law enforcement tools to combat cyber crime, infrastructure protection capabilities, technologies for city security and unmanned aerial systems.

William Bryan, a DHS senior official performing the undersecretary for science and technology's duties, said the partnership enables the department to work with international partners on discovering innovative technologies for homeland security.

“We are excited to renew this partnership for the fourth year and to see what technologies can be developed through this program,” he said.

The foundation will accept proposals through April 3 and award selected projects by July.
