The program was established in partnership with the U.S. Air Force Academy, DHS’s Center for Innovation, and the Center for Innovation Technology (CIT).

They will have sensor technologies for sharing information in real-time with hospitals that will be invaluable for rescues in disasters. Such emerging technologies will positively impact on the ability of those first at the scene to better remedy challenging situations. Learn more
