Hsarpa mission

HSARPA Mission

Engage the Private Sector in R&D to Satisfy DHS needs

  • Satisfy operational requirements

  • Conduct rapid prototyping and commercial adaptation

  • Research & develop revolutionary options

Legacy of hsarpa name how is it different from darpa

Legacy of HSARPA NameHow is it different from DARPA?

  • Differences

    • 85-90% of funds for identified DHS requirements

    • 10-15% of funds for revolutionary research

      • Breakthroughs,

      • New technologies and systems

<<Dr Jane A. Alexander -Homeland Security Symp-Expos.ppt .ppt>>


Dhs systems needs differ from dod and other agency systems needs

DHS Systems Needs Differ from DoD and Other Agency Systems Needs

  • “Zero” false positives at the system level

  • Affordability is a performance characteristic;

    • “If it’s not affordable…zero performance”

  • System matches regional needs

    • Tailored to existing vulnerabilities, governments, methods of operations and legacy systems

  • Cannot mandate Federal solutions

<<Dr Jane A. Alexander -Homeland Security Symp-Expos.ppt .ppt>>


Technology strategy

Technology Strategy

  • DOD

    • “Train as you fight… fight as you train”

  • DHS

    • Deal with emergency using strengths built to handle everyday missions

<<Dr Jane A. Alexander -Homeland Security Symp-Expos.ppt .ppt>>


Legacy of hsarpa name how is it like darpa

Legacy of HSARPA NameHow is it like DARPA?

  • Similarities

    • Program Manager owns program

    • Active technical leadership of program

    • Full range of contracting vehicles

    • Common technology base with DoD

<<Dr Jane A. Alexander -Homeland Security Symp-Expos.ppt .ppt>>


Hsarpa program defined

HSARPA Program Defined

  • Coordinated R&D efforts that accomplish a specific mission-oriented objective

  • Delivers: capability, hardware, software, prototype, algorithm, demonstration of feasibility, etc.

  • Defined schedule, funding, & risk management strategy

    • May be phased

    • May include downselects

  • Not just a collection of contracts

<<Dr Jane A. Alexander -Homeland Security Symp-Expos.ppt .ppt>>


Program management process

Program Management Process

Planning

Solicitation

Contract

Execution

  • Communicating our plans

  • Providing useful context

  • Presenting priorities

  • Posting solicitations

  • Solicitation process – White Papers

  • Submitting proposals

  • Different programs demand different contract vehicles

  • Use flexibility to match mission

  • Programs tailored to meet unique conditions of objectives

  • Minimum bureaucracy

<<Dr Jane A. Alexander -Homeland Security Symp-Expos.ppt .ppt>>


Communication is important bureaucracy isn t

Communication Is Important, Bureaucracy Isn’t

  • To get the best efforts, we need continuous communication

  • If you have a good idea:

    • First, look for an open solicitation

    • Second, call or email us

    • If we resonate, then send a short white paper

    • If still good, then send a full proposal

  • Continue communication during execution

<<Dr Jane A. Alexander -Homeland Security Symp-Expos.ppt .ppt>>


R d priorities

R&D Priorities

1) Develop and deploy state-of-the-art, high performance, low operating cost systems toprevent the illicit traffic of R/N materials and weaponsinto and within United States.

2) Provide state-of-the-art, high performance, low operating cost systems todetect rapidly and mitigate the consequences of the release of biological and chemical agents.

3) Provide state-of-the-art, high performance, low operating costsystems todetect illicit high explosivestransit into and within the United States.
