On May 21 and 22, I attended the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science & Technology Silicon Valley Innovation Program (SVIP) Demo Week in Alexandria, VA.

I, along with my colleague Brandon, represented AIS at this annual showcase of nearly 40 SVIP-funded startup companies and their innovative technologies addressing DHS missions. AIS’s role is to support various SVIP portfolio companies in creating robust products and demonstrating the products’ efficacy in meeting DHS and/or broader customer needs.

Topics for which portfolio companies presented demos of their products included:

  • Sensor Technologies (deployable tracking buoys for USCG)
  • HealthTech
  • Computer Vision
  • Data Analytics
  • Language Translation
  • Cybersecurity Startups
  • Digital Credentials
  • Digital Wallets

The conference included more than 260 attendees from startups, large and small businesses, government agencies, VCs and academic institutions who were able to experience and participate in technology demonstrations and meet the founders in the Startup Tech Expo. Participants also heard from two special DHS keynote speakers, industry leaders, tech investors, DHS operational agencies and SVIP partners whose innovative solutions are supporting DHS missions.

Attending SVIP Demo Week was an incredible experience. It was inspiring to see cutting-edge technologies and innovative solutions that are enhancing national security. The collaboration between the DHS and the tech community is a testament to the power of public-private partnerships in driving technological advancements. As an engineer, witnessing firsthand the practical applications of these innovations has been both motivating and enlightening, reaffirming my belief in the vital role that technology plays in safeguarding our future. Our team at AIS is proud to support these outstanding startups and their contributions to DHS missions.
