Echodyne, the manufacturer of innovative, high-performance radars for government and commercial markets, announced today that its co-founder and Chief Technology Officer, Dr. Tom Driscoll, will lead the session entitled “Sensor Modalities for Securing the Homeland” at Homeland Security Week on Thursday, November 21st at 3:45pm ET. The event takes place at the Grand Hyatt in Washington, DC.
The event brings together executives and leading professionals from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), local law enforcement, military, industry and academia to discuss the security challenges that affect our borders, trade, critical infrastructure and local law enforcement.
Driscoll will focus on sensor modalities for creating comprehensive situational awareness, protecting critical infrastructure, and securing the skies against drone threats at stadiums, parks, and other public spaces. As drones become more capable and more ubiquitous, new technology is needed to protect perimeters and borders from drone incursions. New sensor technologies that provide high performance at a reasonable price can enhance situational awareness, act as a force multiplier, and increase law enforcement safety.
“The threats against the homeland will continue to rise and the need for 3D situational awareness becomes more crucial than ever,” Driscoll said. “Modern sensor technologies deliver a new level of situational awareness that will increase security and save lives.”
Echodyne will also be exhibiting at Homeland Security Week.
