In 2018, we will mark another anniversary: 15 years of support to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), a collaboration that began within weeks of the establishment of the Department. The challenges facing the Homeland Security Enterprise continue to grow in complexity—from fighting an evolving terrorist threat, to securing our borders, to ensuring appropriate responses to natural disasters. Insightful, technically superb analyses help identify appropriate policy responses. In this issue of IDA Research Notes, we celebrate IDA’s long-standing collaborative relationship with DHS; the articles in this edition are summaries of projects conducted for DHS over the last 15 years, some of which continue today, or of topics relevant to the Homeland Security Enterprise. They exemplify the diversity and depth of our work to address the evolving, complex challenges across the homeland security space.
