Innovation Campus, MIT host
National Guard Tactical Leaders Seminar
In September of 2018, KRI, in conjunction with the MIT Lincoln Laboratory, hosted a training designed to bring National Guard service members and their interagency partners in the emergency management and homeland security fields together. On the Innovation Campus at Burlington and at MIT, Guard members and federal-level emergency response managers from across the U.S. spent three days touring facilities and hearing talks on new and emerging technologies and techniques in the homeland protection, emergency management, space, cyber, and innovation domains.
More than 100 participants came from 35 U.S. states and Puerto Rico.
According to National Guard Bureau Homeland Security Institute officials, the program had two goals: To showcase available assets, such as LiDAR, which uses radio waves to create detailed 3D maps of disaster zones; and to highlight technologies in development, such as drone-detection systems.
The program also addressed a pressing need, HSI leaders said, to get National Guard members working side-by-side with heads of other organizations engaged in emergency management and disaster response. More than 100 participants came from 35 U.S. states and Puerto Rico.
