Project Details

Abstract: 

The objective of this project is to develop sustainable and scalable integrated systems to discover emerging or disruptive technologies before they have an innovative impact on the weapons of mass destruction (WMD) and the countering-WMD (CWMD) mission space. Employing discovery methodologies will enable continuous horizon scanning, and drive technology forecast analysis and reporting to assist the CWMD community of interest (CoI) in avoiding technological surprise.

Individuals with a CWMD background who are interested in participating in the study are encouraged to contact Salma Bouziani (bouziani@umd.edu) or Steve Sin (sinss@umd.edu).
