You’re Invited to the Technology and Innovation Exchanges: Advancing Detection Canine R&D Event



The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) invites you to attend the Technology and Innovation Exchanges (TIES): Advancing Detection Canine R&D engagement. This TIES event will focus on the DHS S&T Detection Canine Program’s operational mission to provide the tools, techniques and knowledge to better understand, train, and use detection canine teams.


This engagement provides industry and innovators the opportunity to hear from operational end users and DHS S&T about the research challenge areas in the detection canine community and opportunities to work with us to support this vital mission. DHS S&T wants to engage with interested innovators to help identify impactful solutions for operational end users, specifically to:


  • Develop and validate tools and techniques for the canine end-user community to optimize training methods and deployment strategies
  • Perform comprehensive canine research to maximize the abilities of odor detection dogs
  • Conduct chemistry of odor analysis and odor effects studies to reduce the burden of training and maintenance of certified detection canines
