Vulcan this Week

Last Updated: April 10, 2018

On behalf of the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) Physical Security Enterprise & Analysis Group (PSEAG) Detection & Assessment (D&A) Integrated Process Team (IPT), I invite and/or seek your assistance to gather information to further our understanding on currently technologies and/or prototypes efforts, that could align within the PSEAG D&A focus area and meet capability gaps faced by the Services today and into the future. PSEAG invites industry, academia, and other Government organizations to submit their innovative technology solutions through an RFI process. Select information gathered will be used to populate a PSEAG D&A Technology Roadmap and catalog/archive for possible capability demonstration events focused on the protection of government infrastructure and facility security.

The current PSEAG D&A Roadmap RFI is posted on the VULCAN platform. ( Vulcan is a technology scouting platform that allows the enterprise to collaborate readily and by default on the discovery and assessment of technologies of relevance to the warfighter. Vulcan is a responsive web-based application that allows scouts to rapidly collect technology information in the form of scout cards on multiple devices. It allows scouts to easily share technology profiles and conduct collaborative assessments so as to eliminate redundancies and increase efficiencies for the enterprise. For those that are unfamiliar with VULCAN I have included an attachment above explaining the platform and its utility. The submission deadline is 5:00 PM EST on 15 June 2018.
