The Department of Homeland Security’s Science and Technology Division has awarded the Regents of the University of Colorado and Galois, Inc., contracts worth a combined $1.15 million to enhance the department’s data privacy portfolio.
“Support for these initiatives demonstrates how S&T is fostering responsible innovation to protect the nation’s people, infrastructure and assets while also protecting privacy,” said S&T Physical and Cyber Security Division Director Mary McGinley in a statement.
The University of Colorado was awarded a $750,000 contract to develop the DronePD drone intrusion detection system to be a “cost-effective, passive and easy-to-use drone detection and tracking system solution to help manage privacy risk,” according to DHS.
Galois, Inc., of Portland, Ore., was awarded $399,900 to support the prototyped Framework for Information Disclosure with Ethical Security (FIDES) platform, which DHS describes as “a scalable, fine-grained, technical disclosure control system for datasets.”
