|NUSTL Hosts the 25th New York Area Science & Technology Forum|
In January, the DHS Science and Technology Directorate’s (S&T) National Urban Security Technology Laboratory (NUSTL) hosted the 25th New York Area Science & Technology (NYAST) Forum. With more than 60 representatives from the emergency response and homeland security communities in attendance, the event featured a presentation entitled “Hostile Intent and Suspicious Behavior Detection” by Larry Willis, senior science advisor and program manager in S&T’s Human Factors Division. Mr. Willis spoke about research programs that demonstrate how applying behavioral sciences creates new insights and tools that in turn support real-time suspicious behavior detection, operational screening, and credibility assessments.
Weren’t able to attend the NYAST forum? No problem. A webcast of this meeting will soon be available on NYASTon.tv. To view the webcast, you must be a member of the NYAST community on First Responder Communities of Practice. Not a member? Request membership today at https://communities.firstresponder.gov/.
NYAST is a consortium of local, state, and federal government organizations and private sector groups that meet on a regular basis to discuss advances in homeland security capabilities and solutions. NYAST provides a unique opportunity for S&T to gather valuable feedback from field operators and to get information about operators’ most pressing issues and needs in homeland security.
