Director: Michael Silevitch, Director of the Bernard M. Gordon Center for Subsurface Sensing and Imaging Systems, a National Science Foundation Engineering Research Center
ALERT seeks to conduct transformational research, technology and educational development for effective characterization, detection, mitigation and response to the explosives-related threats facing the country and the world. The ALERT research program is driven by inspiring challenges such as ultra-reliable screening, explosives detection at a distance, or unequivocal pre- and post-blast mitigation. These challenges have defined [...]

The mission of the George J. Kostas Research Institute for Homeland Security is to advance resilience in the face of 21st century risks. The institute will foster collaborative, use-inspired research aimed at expanding the capacity of communities, critical systems, and infrastructure to withstand, respond to, and recover from manmade and natural catastrophes.
Director: Engin Kirda, Sy and Laurie Sternberg Interdisciplinary Associate Professor for Information Assurance
The Institute for Information Assurance (IIA) is an interdisciplinary effort between the College of Computer and Information Science and the College of Engineering. The major goal of the Institute is to develop new cross-disciplinary methodologies to provide robust and reliable transmission of physically distributed information. We are working to provide information security within organizations and advisory [...]
