I was on a call with the Department of Homeland Security SBIR director recently. No open solicitations yet, but he did give a quick overview of what they need, including:
* Technologies for expediting screening at airports (that personally brought a smile to my face when I heard they were interested in that field of technology!).
* Cyber security solutions.
* Technologies to support protected communications to first responders.
* Technologies to strengthen disaster preparedness of at-risk communities.
