EDITOR'S NOTE: During the 2002 TMS Fall Meeting in Columbus, Ohio, the symposium Opportunities and Issues in Homeland Security was cosponsored by The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society and ASM International. The speakers' slides from several of the presentations were collected and converted to into portable document format (PDF) files for viewing as this month's JOM-e.
This paper introduces the talks to follow and provides a brief overview of
the recently released National Research Council report Making the Nation
Safer: The Role of Science and Technology in Countering Terrorism. The report
includes general principles and strategies, including identifying and repairing
the weakest links in vulnerable systems and infrastructures and searching for
technologies that reduce costs or provide ancillary benefits to civil society
to ensure a sustainable effort against terrorist threats.
