DHS focuses on counter-drone technology


The capital of the United States is Washington, DC. The Defense Technical Information Center (DTIC) was awarded $259,831,989.00 by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate to help acquire technical services in support of S&T’s efforts to counter unmanned system threats (C-UST). Through the DoD’s Fair Opportunity Proposal Request competitive process, Germantown, MD-based Amentum Services, Inc. was selected to serve as the prime contractor.

According to Kathryn Coulter Mitchell, S&T’s Under Secretary for Science and Technology, “S&T’s C-UST effort focuses on identifying and developing technologies that can be used to meet the operational priorities of DHS components and other federal, state, and local partners,” she said. Once they have this information, they can go out and get technology that will help them better protect America’s critical infrastructure and the people who live in it.

Amentum will carry out complex research and development activities under this contract in order to combat new threats posed by unmanned systems. Work involves investigating, developing, and testing capabilities related to cyber vulnerabilities of countering-unmanned aircraft systems (C-UAS) technologies; radio frequency spectrum measurements to enable safe integration of C-UAS equipment into the national airspace; integrating, testing, and evaluating new and emerging C-UAS and UAS technologies across various environments and terrains within the homeland; and assisting with the integration and deployment of prototype C-UAS and UAS systems.

My weaknesses are that I am an honest person and I tend to be blunt, and sometimes, I like to work alone. I am passionate about content writing, online gaming, and learning new things, especially languages (currently German). I have written two papers for my University degree, which helped me immensely in learning how to write effectively. I am confident in my writing skills, and I can effectively pour my thoughts out in writing and express myself so that the reader relates to it and is intrigued by the content. I love to play with my pet cat, and she is a darling to me. The thing that I dislike the most is being distracted when you are in the zone. Currently, I am a content writer in a dynamic work environment at Shouzy, ready to improve readers' satisfaction and increase retention levels.
