BIPS 01 Aging Infrastructure: Issues, Research, and Technology  


Because science and technology are crucial to mitigating natural and man-made threats to critical infrastructure and ensuring the continuity of their services, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology (S&T) Directorate has established a goal to accelerate the delivery and understanding of enhanced technology that addresses the challenges of aging infrastructure. The DHS S&T Infrastructure Protection and Disaster Management Division (IDD) supports this goal by funding the creation of a research agenda to develop improved technical options for upgrading and increasing the service life of aging infrastructure.
