Homeland Defense Journal Online creates a forum for the
useful flow of information between the private and public sectors
that will positively influence and hasten the development of solutions
to homeland security requirements. Our strategy is forward looking,
to bring into focus those programs, projects, new initiatives and
innovative products that offer potential support to those charged
with the development, testing and deployment of solutions.

working in all areas of homeland defense, we want to ensure that
the publication speaks to its readers. Although the editors of Homeland
