Title: Rutgers University Homeland Security Research Symposium

  • Concerns about security
  • Physical safety
  • Transportation
  • Food and water supply
  • The fundamental technologies underlying our
    economic system (communications, computing)
  • The very working of our modern society
  • RUHSRI is aimed at coordinating homeland security
    research at Rutgers.

3
RUHSRI was founded in May 2003. It resulted from
a series of meetings following the September 11
attacks meetings were aimed at sharing
information about research efforts at
Rutgers. Thanks to the initiative of Office of
VP for Academic Affairs Office of Federal
Relations Office of Research and Sponsored
Programs
4
Existing efforts at Rutgers in homeland security
research are widespread and impressive. Many
could lead quickly to practical RD programs and
new business development. They could easily form
the basis for a dozen major initiatives. We
present a selection of relevant current research.
5
SURVEILLANCE/DETECTION
  • Biosurveillance/chemosurveillance
  • Adverse event/bioterrorist attack detection
  • Pathogen detection (Terahertz (THz) wave imaging
    detecting airborne anthrax particles)
  • Weapons detection/identification (dirty bombs,
    plastic explosives)
  • Analysis of massive, high speed data for
    anomaly/outlier detection
  • Intelligent question answering (interface between
    the intelligence analyst and data)
  • Computational/mathematical models in epidemiology

6
SURVEILLANCE/DETECTION-II
  • Biometrics
  • Face, gait, voice, iris recognition
  • Non-verbal behavior detection (lying or telling
    the truth?)
  • Text Surveillance
  • Monitoring message streams for new events
  • Statistical methods in textual analysis

7
SURVEILLANCE/DETECTION - III
  • Sensors
  • Bioterrorism sensor location
  • Sensor networks to monitor bio/chem hazards
  • Design of sensors (high sensitivity ZnO sensors
    UV detection devices for bio-detection nanoscale
    semiconductor sensors)

BASIS bioterrorism sensor
8
PROTECTING THE CRITICAL INFRASTRUCTURE
  • Communication Security
  • Network security, mobile and wireless security
  • Secure communication through tunable adaptive
    filters
  • Secure communication through low bit-rate coding
  • Sharing data
  • Information privacy
  • Identity theft
  • Secure e-commerce

9
PROTECTING THE CRITICAL INFRASTRUCTURE II
  • Transportation and Border Security
  • Transportation infrastructure security (airports,
    marine terminals, transit hubs)
  • Pattern recognition for machine-assisted baggage
    searches
  • Statistical analysis of flight/aircraft
    inspections
  • Port-of-entry inspection algorithms
  • Border security (decision support software)
  • Vessel tracking for homeland defense
  • Pipeline security

10
PROTECTING THE CRITICAL INFRASTRUCTURE III
  • Food and Water Supply Security
  • Regional drinking water security consortium
  • Food and water biosecurity initiative
  • Remediating contaminated water
  • Bioterrorism training (environment public
    health)
  • Agroterrorism Using economic weapons to prevent
    agroterror attacks

11
RESPONDING TO AN ATTACK
  • Exposure/Toxicology
  • Modeling dose received
  • Rapid risk and exposure characterization
  • Toxicology of WMDs
  • Evacuation
  • Simulating evacuation of complex transportation
    facilities
  • Plume modeling to determine areas of risk
  • Handling patients before ER admission.

12
RESPONDING TO AN ATTACK - II
  • Cleanup
  • Monitoring and control for chem/bio attack
    emergency response
  • Air and water purification systems
  • Decontamination of areas affected by chem/bio
    weapons
  • Emergency scene management

13
RESPONDING TO AN ATTACK - III
  • Emergency Communications
  • Infostations for rapid wireless communication for
    first responders
  • Rapid networking at emergency locations
  • Risk communication methods
  • Rapid telecollaboration
  • Legal Responses to Terrorism
  • Analysis of laws to control or suppress terrorism

14
STRENGTHS AT RUTGERS
  • Many of the projects described are already
    receiving external funding.
  • There is already substantial partnership with NJ
    industry (small and large).

Research at Rutgers (without a coordinated
effort) is 54M

PROJECTS OF RUHSRI
  • Database of researchers/research at Rutgers
  • Enhancing collaborations within RU and with other
    universities and government and industry
  • Leveraging individual efforts (e.g., CJGED
    proposal, DHS university centers of excellence
    proposal)
  • Taking a leadership role at Rutgers and NJ
  • Todays symposium
  • Symposium on homeland security research at NJs
    research universities October 29, at Rutgers

18

TODAYS AGENDA
  • Short talks quick overviews
  • Posters and demonstrations In lobby and during
    lunch in 4th floor conference room
  • Lunch fourth floor lounge (with DIMACS Workshop
    on Large-Scale Internet Attacks)
  • Discussion groups What should we be doing and
    what can Rutgers do? See charge.
  • Reports from discussion groups.
  • Networking reception.
