Homeland Security Technology Consortium (HSTech)

The Homeland Security Technology Consortium (HSTech) supports the CBP and other potential customers within DHS in providing collaborative R&D and rapid prototyping/piloting capabilities germane to the homeland security domain.

A group of large and small businesses, non-profit organizations and academic research institutions quickly coalesced in the spring of 2012 to form the nucleus of the Border Security Technology Consortium (BSTC), now HSTech. The desired objective is for the HSTech to provide a “one-stop” source for capabilities across the homeland security technology spectrum, including:

  • Surveillance and monitoring
  • Identification and assessment
  • Targeting and intelligence
  • Communications and information management
  • Contraband Interdiction
  • Maritime Domain Awareness
  • and other homeland security-related capabilities

The HSTech Mission is  to execute R&D and prototyping/piloting initiatives using innovative contracting methodologies that leverage both governmental and consortia technological, financial, and human resources to meet homeland security requirements and close capability gaps.
