Commentary and Opinions

Every business day, companies fight to keep manufacturing in the U.S., and with good reason. Companies want to keep highly-skilled, well-paying jobs here. They want to keep profits and taxes in the U.S. But, foremost, when one looks at the total cost of manufacturing, domestic manufacturing truly is the most cost-effective option.

Companies witness this every day and it’s starting to become apparent as more customers are re-sourcing product from Mexico, Eastern Europe and the Far East back to the U.S. So, why is the U.S. becoming the next low-cost region for manufacturing?

Counterfeiting has become a problem too big and too serious to ignore. Its impact is now felt directly throughout the world economy -- even in the United States military supply chain where we now know that “military capable” technologies have been counterfeited. Counterfeiting was easier to overlook, despite the enormous economic and security implications, when it was seen as a luxury problem, an affliction affecting the manufacturers of designer handbags and outfits. Luxury or not, it is clear that it is a problem that we cannot ignore.

A woman in Black Hawk County, Iowa was alone upstairs when her former boyfriend -- who had a history of domestic violence -- entered her home. Afraid that the sound of her voice would reveal her location, she used her cell phone to send a text message to 9-1-1. A few minutes later, police officers arrived at the scene and arrested the ex-boyfriend for violating a court order requiring him to stay away from the woman.

High-definition video conferencing gives federal agencies tools for cost savings and increased productivity through secure teleworking and collaborative work environments. Federal executives, then, must understand the security issues of HD video conferencing -- on-premise or in the cloud.

In video conferencing, agencies are concerned with secure data storage, controlling and handling classified information to protect it from falling into the wrong hands.

By Rep. Bennie G. Thompson (D-MS)

Today, we meet to discuss this nation’s progress in bringing about safety, security and resiliency against terrorism since the attacks of 9/11. 

But before we look back, I want to acknowledge and remember all the firefighters, police officers, and ordinary people who lost their lives that Tuesday morning. Remembering those who died must inspire us to make this nation better and safer.

Eric Ivers gives a demonstration of the RoboteX robot and indicates that they are sold mainly to law enforcement agencies, the military, SWAT teams, Army rangers and the company is presently developing a new market with special ops.

Rob Wolf tells GSN that NC4 products focus on situational awareness, and the company is at the IACP show to demonstrate its new NC4 SAFECOP product for state and local law enforcement. NC4 SAFECOP was developed in collaboration with the Tampa, FL police department and is a new crime fighting solution that changes the way officers police the streets by bringing them blogging capabilities which, combined with other police feeds and CAD data, display a graphic representation of crime almost immediately following an incident.

Dr. Banerjee points out that the typical command and control center of an airport, seaport, mass transit hub, utility or city center is a place with input from a number of different silos. The silos must be joined together, he says, so that management can first achieve situational awareness, then move on to situation management and situation reconstruction. That is what Physical Security Information (PSIM) is all about, he says, and it is what Nice’s Situator software offers to security personnel. It’s the ability to pull the silos together and know what to do next.
