While the homeland is on alert, Technical Insights provides indispensable technology information

August 25, 2003

Palo Alto, Calif. - August 25, 2003 - The growing concern for homeland security has amplified the importance of security, safety and privacy in our daily lives. Accordingly, security technologies are receiving heightened attention by researchers, government agencies, the military, manufacturers, and end users.

"An increase in R&D funding, venture capital and investments in security infrastructures have catapulted the field and turned it into a major growth area," says Technical Insights Global Director of Research Leo O'Connor. "Detection technologies, in particular, are evolving rapidly, as are identity control and encryption systems."

Technical Insights, a business unit of Frost & Sullivan, announces the release of the Homeland Security Alert subscription service. This subscription uncovers and evaluates emerging technological developments as they relate to homeland security. In this subscription service, important new equipment, systems, applications, markets, companies, and technologies in the field are assessed. The Homeland Security Alert also provides difficult-to-find information on new projects, funding, spending, and contact information for key industry participants.

This subscription service concentrates on the science, technology, applications, and markets for homeland security systems. The recent search for weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, battlefield surveillance for chemical and biological hazards, and scares of "white powder" in postal centers and airports illustrate the need for a better understanding of the weapons of mass destruction detection process and equipment. These events also produce opportunities for researchers, developers, manufacturers, and users of technological systems.

A new issue of Homeland Security Alert is available every month. Each monthly issue profiles and assesses a different security technology sector. Each issue also provides a section on homeland security spending, exposing where funds are going and identifying what developers and manufacturers are doing with them. This subscription is a must-read for anyone operating in this growth sector.

Frost & Sullivan is a global leader in strategic growth consulting. Acquired by Frost & Sullivan, Technical Insights is an international technology analysis business that produces a variety of technical news alerts, newsletters, and research services.
