Can ‘technology engines’ power innovation at DHS?

The Department of Homeland Security has introduced seven technology engines to power “open innovation” and help project managers across the department.  And those engines, while focused on specific technologies, are primarily made of people.

Reginald Brothers, DHS’ undersecretary for science and technology, previewed the technology engines last September in congressional testimony, explaining that they would “focus on technology foraging and the development of specific core capabilities and systems that cut across, and benefit, numerous programs and projects across S&T’s portfolio.”  John S. Verrico, a spokesman for the Science and Technology Directorate, told GCN that the technology engines debuted in June.
