The Roadmap is divided into four main focus areas, each with their own subcategories. The Roadmap also defines the ideal future state of each focus area and the OPS capability as a whole.1.Screening at Speed2.Reduced DivestitureDeploytechnologies that maximize throughput and minimize invasiveness MoveAdvance through checkpoint in a seamless, continuous, and uninterrupted mannerFuture State1.Enhanced Threat Detection2.Standoff Detection3.Dynamic SwitchingImplement solutions that maximize threat detection and minimize false alarmsDetectEnhance security effectiveness through improved detection, reduced false alarms, and dynamic RBS1.Remote Screening2.Secure TransmissionHarden network security to allow for resource reallocation through remote accessConnectEnable operational connectivity and flexibility through secure and remote file transfer1.Common Graphical User Interface (CGUI)2.Common Image File FormatStandardize interface, controls, and image outputs across all technologiesDisplayOptimize training and operational efficiencies through display and image standardizationFuture StateFuture StateFuture State On-Person Screening Capability Development Roadmap 9DHS S&T Discussion –Screening at Speed9:25 –9:35John Fortune –Program ManagerDHS Science and Technology Directorate 10DHS Science & Technology DirectorateEnable effective, efficient, and secure operations across allhomeland security missions by applying scientific, engineering,analytic, and innovative approaches to deliver timely solutionsand support departmental acquisitions.MissionVisionTrusted partner enabling homeland security missions. 11John Fortune –Program ManagerS&T Screening at SpeedDr. John M. Fortune is the Screening at Speed Program Manager in the DHS Science and Technology (S&T) Directorate.
