Homeland Defense extends beyond the important mission of preventing attacks on population centers, as natural and adversarial events affecting the nation’s critical infrastructure (e.g., power grid, transportation systems, water supply, financial systems, etc.) could have an equally as, if not more, devastating impact on the US. The seriousness of these threats and the severity of the consequences have never been more apparent.

Quanterion performs a wide range of investigations and analyses intended to improve the U.S. defense and responsiveness to events that present a potential threat. These efforts address preventative measures, including design analysis to ensure the security of cyber-physical systems and the identification of vulnerabilities for the integration of fail-safe/fault tolerant systems for critical infrastructure protection, as well as incident recovery planning in response to chemical-biological events and weapons of mass destruction.
