The U.S. Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate invites members of the private sector, academia, federal laboratories, and the innovation community to attend a Stakeholder Summit from 8:30 AM-2:30 PM on Thursday, August 9, 2018, in Washington, DC, at the National Association of Home Builders, 1201 15th Street NW. Admission of registered attendees begins at 7:30 AM. The Summit will consist of a discussion of common global first responder capability gaps and markets as identified by the International Forum to Advance First Responder Innovation. Current capability gaps include the ability to (1) know the location of responders and their proximity to risks and hazards in real time; (2) detect, monitor, and analyze passive and active threats and hazard at incident scenes in real time; (3) rapidly identify hazardous agents and contaminants; and (4) incorporate information from multiple and non-traditional sources (e.g., crowd-sourcing and social media) into incident command operations. This event will provide an opportunity for attendees to learn about these high-priority global first responder capability gaps, as well as the potential marketplace for developed solutions. Admission is free. All attendees must register prior to the day of the Summit no later than 2:00 PM ET on August 7, 2018. Files containing the meeting agenda and background information for the event are attached to the FedBizOpps notice. https://www.fbo.gov/spg/DHS/OCPO/PIADC/DHS_FRG_IFAFRI_20180809/listing.html
