DHS Nurtures Wearable Tech for Responders

Ten startups will be working on EMERGE 2016, the Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate’s  program supporting research and development of wearable technology for first responders. EMERGE 2016 expands on last year’s pilot that accelerated the delivery of the latest innovative wearable technologies for first responders by bringing startups, accelerators and strategic partners together in a common research and development effort.

“We need to find technologies for first responders that can be integrated directly into their existing gear,” DHS Under Secretary for Science and Technology Reginald Brothers said in a statement. “The entrepreneurial world is on the leading edge of those inventive solutions.”
