DHS Picks 13 Firms for Public Safety Tech R&D - top government contractors - best government contracting eventThe Department of Homeland Security has chosen 13 domestic and foreign companies to build public safety technology platforms for “smart city” use.

Selectees will aim to develop in-building sensors, unmanned aerial systems and mobile SmartHubs intended to support responder situational awareness, building security and mission-critical operations, DHS said Monday.

The grants stem from a solicitation posted in early 2018 under the Smart Cities Internet of Things Innovation Labs program.

“Our goal here was to identify technologies already on the market that could be adapted to meet the very specific needs and challenges of those protecting and serving our communities,” said Jeff Booth, a program manager at DHS S&T.

Thirteen developers will perform work under three different technology areas.
