    Subject-matter experts present key information on several topics that impact homeland security in 18 peer-reviewed papers.

    With a growing need for homeland security and public safety standards, researchers, standards developers and users, manufacturers, test laboratories, accreditation bodies, and government agencies will all benefit from the research presented in this book.

    Topics include:

    – standards development and conformity assessment
    – personal protective equipment for law enforcement, fire service, EMS, and bomb squads
    – security and infrastructure
    – usability and human factor elements of technology
    – operational equipment
    – response robotics
    – critical infrastructure and security technology

    The papers in this publication are a result of the inaugural symposium sponsored by ASTM International Committee E54 on Homeland Security Applications held in June 2018.
