Just as the Pentagon depends on DARPA to keep the military on the cutting edge of science and technology, so too, does the Department of Homeland Security have an ARPA to keep DHS agencies out on the technological edge. On this edition of AFCEA Answers, Dr. Adam Cox, Acting Director of the Homeland Security Advanced Projects Research Agency (HSARPA) discusses the similarities - and the differences - between his organization and DARPA. He explains how "tech foraging" allows HSARPA to meet customer needs while saving taxpayers a buck or two. And he offers an unclassified look at some forward thinking technological solutions now being developed for transportation and border security.
