The U.S. Department of Homeland Security is innovating how it goes about buying solutions in support of their current & future national security mission sets. The DHS is positioning itself in order to meet next-generation threats to the Homeland, and this keynote session will highlight these ongoing efforts and more.
Today’s global strategic environment presents a litany of complex challenges to deterring near-peer adversary aggression and coercion. State and non-state actors’s threat capability across nuclear and non-nuclear threats have grown substantially across the spectrum of conflict.
In order to meet the next-generation of homeland security technology and capability, there requires a strategic development of plans to protect and sustain the United States’ industrial base. Maintaining a reactive, prepared, and deployable base is imperative to sustaining critical US homeland defense technologies.
The Joint Requirements Council (JRC) validates capability gaps, associated with operational requirements and proposed solution approaches to mitigate those gaps through the Joint Requirements Integration and Management System (JRIMS), leveraging opportunities for commonality to enhance operational effectiveness directly and better inform the DHS’ main investment pillars. Expanding joint requirements and commonality efforts will surely drive efficiencies across the Department, and this session will highlight those efforts.
The FBI has a wide-ranging and rapidly evolving role across the aviation sector. Unmanned and manned aerial threats have proliferated across the Homeland and represent an entirely new threat vector, evolving in complexity and capability.
