DHS invites demonstrations of counter-IED technology


The explosives division of the DHS Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) will be conducting operational field demonstrations of remotely operated and standoff explosive countermeasure technologies to address the threat from suicide bombers as well as leave-behind and vehicle-borne improvised explosive devices (VBIEDs). S&T’s Standoff Technology Integration Demonstration program is a multi-year effort (which will conclude in 2013), designed to accelerate the development of standoff explosives detection technologies, concept of operations and training to counter these threats. The ultimate goal of the program is to prevent explosive attacks at large public events via a spiral development approach. To that end, S&T seeks to obtain information on remotely-operated and standoff explosive detection technologies and system integration strategies that have the ability to detect unique signatures that could be attributed to the components of a VBIED. Response deadline is Sept. 30, 2008. For additional information, contact
Albert Dainton, at 202-254-6371.
