The Department of Homeland Security's science and technology directorate met with the First Responder Resource Group to discuss public safety gaps, priorities and potential projects. FRRG reviewed initiatives under the directorate's Silicon Valley Innovation Program, Small Business Innovation Research effort and Next Generation First Responder Apex Program, DHS said Tuesday.

DHS S&T demonstrated some of its technologies during the meeting, including a GPS tracking tool and a virtual training system. In addition, the two entities discussed the expansion and commercialization of DHS S&T technologies and opened new solicitations for various topics.

“Thanks to strong relationships with our industry partners and their ongoing hard work and innovation, we are able to create technological solutions and apply them to the emergency response environment," said Milt Nenneman, a program manager at DHS S&T.
