Subject: Deconstructing SBIR: Detecting Trapped Survivors
Due Date: 15 Feb 2022
Government Organization: DHS
You’re invited to join the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Program on Tuesday, February 15 at 2:00 p.m. ET for the Deconstructing SBIR: Detecting Trapped Survivors webinar.
In the event of a disaster, or other tragedy, first responders can be faced with the daunting task of searching for survivors and, in situations such as a building collapse, there remains a technological gap with respect to finding those that are trapped underneath rubble, or in crevices, created by large piles of concrete, metal, glass, and other materials. To that end, DHS SBIR, in partnership with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Urban Search and Recovery (US&R), is seeking technologies, via an Other Agency Technology Solutions (OATS) Request for Information (RFI), that can detect trapped survivors.
During this webinar, viewers will have a chance to hear from FEMA representatives and the DHS SBIR Director about the need for the technology being sought in this RFI and other important details. Eligible submissions must leverage previous SBIR or Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I, Phase II or Phase III awards from another federal agency. To learn more about the Remote Small Space Unmanned System OATS RFI, visit sam.gov.
