DoD and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) will step up their collaborative efforts — DoD announced its strategy in early May for information sharing with “domestic and international partners.” Over at DHS, the director for interagency coordination for the DHS Science and Technology Directorate, Randel Zeller, recently discussed his plans to work more closely with departments outside his agency to share information and technology on common programs such as chemical detectors. DHS is providing some funding to DoD for unmanned aerial vehicle testing and development. According to a source close to the program, these collaborations might mean increased funding, larger requirements, and expanded capabilities to meet a greater range of requirements.
