WASHINGTON, December 11, 2015 – The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) today announced its first Innovation Other Transaction Solicitation (OTS) aimed at non-traditional performers such as technology start-ups to offer solutions to some of the toughest threats facing DHS and the homeland security mission. Awarded through Other Transaction Solicitation HSHQDC-16-R-B0005, the first call for proposals is looking for solutions to improve situational awareness and security measures for protecting Internet of Things (IoT) domains.
“Today marks an important milestone in how we do business at S&T, said DHS Under Secretary for Science and Technology Dr. Reginald Brothers. “We want to remove the barriers that limit the nation’s innovators from considering us as a technology partner. The Innovation OTS will help engage some of the best minds on the most difficult homeland security problems.”
