Intellisense Systems to Develop, Test Flood Detection Systems Under DHS Contract

Jeff Brody

California-based small business firm Intellisense Systems has landed a $3.2M contract from the Department of Homeland Security for the third phase of the Small Business Innovation Research Program to design, develop and demonstrate flood inundation sensors. Efforts under the contract are intended to assist organizations in updating their flood detection capacities with notification and alert functions, DHS said Monday.

This contract follows three recently awarded contracts by DHS. Recipients of those second phase contracts received up to $1M each for the development of prototype flood monitoring technologies.

“The accuracy, performance, and dependability of the sensors and their projected cost points will provide federal, state and local governments—as well as industry sectors like critical infrastructure—a capability to help protect life and property, making communities more resilient from flooding events,” said Jeff Booth, a program manager at DHS’ science and technology directorate.
