  • The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate awarded a $928,541 research and development contract to VTO last week to “increase law enforcement capabilities to identify, collect and analyze evidentiary data from consumer and professional drones.” The award is part of the S&T Cyber Security Division’s (CSD) Cyber Forensics project, which is responsible for developing innovative, cost-effective cyber forensics solutions that help law enforcement keep pace with emerging technology. The project focuses on establishing new capabilities to help law enforcement conduct forensic investigations of digital evidence from various devices such as mobile phones and automobile infotainment systems.
