Idaho State Workshop | Critical Infrastructure Reentry and Situational Awareness Project (CIRSAP) | 2019 Resilience Challenge Grant
Over 100 public and private stakeholders from across Idaho gathered in Boise on June 5, 2019 for the first statewide workshop focused on utilizing Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) for situational awareness. This effort brought together many sectors including law enforcement, emergency management, transportation, communications, emergency services, fire, search and rescue, and higher education research as well as private sector agriculture and infrastructure such as rail, communications, power, and utilities.
The workshop was funded by a grant from the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) National Infrastructure Protection Plan (NIPP) Challenge Grant program. Idaho is one of four states that participated in the CRDR's Resilience Challenge Grant project. Learn more about the CRDR's Resilience Challenge Grant project here.
