03 September 2020
Theatre 2
Human Factors and Performance in a Digital Twin Age

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) and Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC) fund, execute and coordinate research and development activities to enhance civil security and law enforcement, including innovations in command & control technologies, virtual training, communications interoperability, and tools to maximize resiliency. DHS S&T works with law enforcement and civil security organizations in the field to understand agent and officer needs and capability gaps and then address those challenges with innovative solutions by both scouting for existing capabilities or developing and prototyping new technology. DHS S&T then transitions those technologies, tools, techniques or methods into operations to enhance crisis management, agent and officer safety, and operational effectiveness or efficiency. In this international panel session, participants will learn about the latest methods for identifying not only crosscutting requirements within DHS but also those common needs across the federal government and international partners. The panel will also discuss examples of ongoing activities, research, and available resources DHS is leveraging to deliver solutions.
