Technology Profiles
New technology are developed as capability gaps are identified by first responders in the field. They represent technology that are needed, but the commercial industry is not yet prepared to develop.
X-Ray Rover for scanning suspicious packages
Title:
X-Ray Scanning Rover
What it Does:
