The Department of Homeland Security’s Science and Technology Directorate has selected seven federal laboratories to advance the commercialization of federally funded technologies.
Under the Commercialization Accelerator Program, the awardees will create partnerships with private industry to speed up research, development, testing, evaluation and delivery of new technologies and services, DHS said Tuesday.
The awardees and their respective technologies are:
- Argonne National Laboratory: Autonomous Intelligent Cyber-Defense Agent
- Idaho National Laboratory: Plug-N-Play Appliance for Resilient Response of Operational Technologies; Wireless Radio Frequency Signal Identification & Protocol Reverse Engineering
- Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory: Out of Band Over Existing Industrial Control Communications
- Los Alamos National Laboratory: Industrial Internet of Things – Physics-Informed AI Vibe Sensor for Condition Monitoring and Cybersecurity
- National Institute of Standards and Technology Information Technology Laboratory: Artificial Intelligence Bug Finder
- SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory: Grid Resilience & Intelligence Platform 2.0
- U.S. Naval Research Laboratory: Portable Electrochemical Sensor & Test Kit for Explosive & Gunshot Residue
The federal laboratories will receive $1.1 million to transition the technologies from their research laboratories to the marketplace.
CAP seeks proposals from federal laboratories, federally funded research and development centers and university affiliated research centers that develop technologies in support of national security missions.
Dimitri Kusnezov, undersecretary for science and technology at DHS, said the program “bridges the gap between research and the marketplace, accelerating the use and expanding the availability of federally funded technologies.”
