Abstract:

The grant was instrumental in establishing the Network Information and Space Security Center NISSC at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs. NISSC has supported the U.S. Northern Command USNORTHCOM since it was established by providing research and academic programs that aid the command in meeting mission requirements. Over 40 faculty and many graduate student research projects were supported. This led to theses, dissertations, funded research proposals, and multiple publications. The NISSC and several of the campus faculty have continued with research projects initially supported by this grant. The most significant results have been in the areas of cybersecurity, terrorist psychology, biology, and trauma psychology. A graduate certificate in homeland defense has been completed by over 200 USNORTHCOM personnel as well as many others from the local community and across the nation.
