Crimebusters! DHS Science and Technology Directorate

Crimebusters! U.S. Science and Technology Directorate

James Bond has Q Branch, but the U.S. Department of Homeland Security has S&T, the Science and Technology Directorate. Of course, there’s more to this tech alphabet, R&D and HSSAI:

“… S&T maintains a team of futurists in Arlington, Va., at the Homeland Security Studies & Analysis Institute (HSSAI). There, in the Resilience and Emergency Preparedness / Response Branch, analysts explore the art of the possible, helping DHS shape dreams into a lucid, viable vision. ‘Revolutionary ways of working are often invented because visionaries saw a need and a novel way to meet it,’ said Deputy Director Bob Tuohy, who is an admitted sci-fi enthusiast.”


“At Homeland Security’s think tank, first responders imagine a high-tech future,” Press Release
