Numbers in homeland security
Researchers are great at rebadging their work to fit in with whatever subjects are currently fashionable. Look no further than "nanotechnology" for proof of this.
Many researchers in the USA are now climbing aboard the "homeland security" bandwagon. A report on Washington Technology, DHS to spend $60m on R&D for new technologies, shows why. This reports that the Science and Technology Directorate of the Homeland Security Department's will spend $60 million on "research and development of innovative border and maritime security technologies and border officer safety tools through fiscal 2011″.
