DHS, business leaders discuss technology to protect US at Homeland Security conference
Date:5/27/2008

People everywhere have to be free of large-scale catastrophes to pursue their dreams and enjoy life.

In the United States, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is the federal agency charged with protecting our nation from terrorist attacks and making it a more secure place to live, work and visit.

To that end, DHS, through its Science & Technology (S&T) Directorate, works to evaluate and commercialize technology that leads to products, systems and services that help protect the United States from a wide variety of attacks.

Attendees at the 2008 IEEE International Conference on Technologies for Homeland Security at the Westin Waltham Boston found out about some of these technologies from a Business Panel of experts Tuesday 13 May.

At the end of the day we want to deliver products that protect people and property, said business panel honorary chair Dr. Thomas A. Cellucci, chief commercialization officer, DHS S&T.

The two-day 2008 IEEE Homeland Security Conference was the eighth one organized by the IEEE Boston Section following the terrorist attacks of 11 September 2001. The conference continues to grow and this year had more than 450 attendees from the United States and abroad. Industry sponsors included SAIC, Raytheon and the Massachusetts Port Authority (Massport).

IEEE-USA became a co-sponsor in 2007.

Cellucci, who earned his doctorate in physical chemistry, presented an overview of DHS S&Ts technology commercialization programs. He related how he gets numerous e-mails each day from business executives telling him that their company is the only one in the world that has a specific product or capability. He suggests to those who fill his in-box with hyperbole to show us the difference.

Cellucci explained that DHS is working diligently to develop detailed operational requirements and provide conservative estimates of potential markets in DHS and first responder communities. He would
