Homeland Security


NEMA Government Relations is actively engaged in representing its member companies before the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Capitol Hill, and other entities engaged in the growing homeland security, critical infrastructure protection, and safe buildings area.

As part of ongoing U.S. efforts to secure ports and mass transportation systems against threats including explosives, and in cooperation with federal agencies, NEMA has developed the Digital Imaging and Communication for Security (DICOS) Standard. In general, DICOS addresses the exchange of digital information between security-imaging equipment and other systems.
