Advanced Sensor Technologies for Homeland Security (TechVision)

Advanced Sensor Technologies for Homeland Security (TechVision)

The technology and innovation research service assess advanced sensor technologies for homeland security. Increasing terrorist attacks necessities enhanced security measures and sophisticated sensing technology play a vital role in supporting first responders, security personnel with informed decisions. The research service covers different types of sensing technologies such as CBRNE (chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and high-yield explosives), terahertz, infrared, acoustic, spectrometric, and nanosensors. The growing need for accurate sensing, miniaturization, and government funding are few of the factors that boost innovation efforts.

Though there are number of R&D projects related to sensors for the security area, only few projects reach the next phase of development and commercialization. Some of the factors that hinder smart sensors technology progression includes:

Robustness and versatility of traditional technologies
The role and participation of private organizations is minimal compared to government
Technology adoption in the defense sector is slow compared to other industries

This technology and innovation research service provides information of each of the above mentioned sensing technology based on current trends, patent and funding scenario, key applications, industry initiatives, and growth opportunities.
Key questions that are covered in the research service include:

What is the significance of sensors in homeland security?
What are applications that are impacted by the sensor?
Who are the key innovators and their innovation profiles?
What is the industry trend driving adoption?
What are the factors influencing development and adoption?
What are future growth opportunities?
