        • Vulnerabilities

        • Mitigate damages

        • Identify Potential Threats





    • Public Area and Infrastructure Protection

      • Technologies to provide and augment operational and situational awareness, enhance infrastructure and public area protection, and provide near or real time analytics of threats to diverse, large scale critical infrastructure related to transportation.







A formal Request for Proposals (RFP), other solicitation, or additional information regarding this announcement will not be issued. Readers should note that this is an announcement to declare TSA's broad role in competitive funding of meritorious research across a spectrum of science and engineering disciplines.



The TSA will not issue paper copies of this announcement.
