Paper Abstract

Homeland Security R&D budgets will be summarized with an emphasis on the FY 2007 and comparisons to FY 2006 and the proposed FY 2008 budget. A summary of the federal budget process is given with insights into the specific omnibus bill funding FY 2007 for most of the federal budget and the omnibus bill's impact on organizations included in the American Competitiveness Initiative. Projections for FY 2008 Homeland Security Research, as analyzed by AAAS, show that ~80% of R&D funding is outside the Department of Homeland Security. An overview of the conference includes insights into the Drinking Water Security, Border Security, Transportation Security (including an update from the MANPADS program office), Port and Harbor Security, Health Security, and Non-Intrusive Inspection Technologies sessions.
