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.
The events of September 11, 2001, have created a heightened interest and need
for innovative ways to protect the people of the United States and, concurrently,
minimize the degree to which their personal freedom is compromised. Achieving
these two objectives simultaneously will require true innovation because new
approaches to achieving security will be necessary. This begs the question,
how will we meet his challenge and where will this innovation originate? A possibility
is that a and major source of non-aligned technical and scientific talent is
represented by faculty students in the research universities of this country.
Engaging this talent pool in a productive manner to achieve the desired innovation
creates some interesting challenges, many of which are nontechnical. Included
is handling intellectual properties, restriction on access to sensitive data,
and information and the multi-national character of the talent pool at all universities.
This talk describes some of these challenges and offers some suggestions regarding
ways to proceed.
