Homeland Security Funds 5 New Projects Exploring Blockchain Technology

The Homeland Security Department tapped one U.S.-based and four international blockchain companies to explore the emerging, record-keeping technology’s potential to help refresh how the agency conducts operations.

The five startups were selected to receive phase I awards amounting to more than $800,000 collectively through the DHS Science and Technology Directorate’s Silicon Valley Innovation Program, or SVIP. Their work could eventually lead to the potential production of a Social Security number alternative that won’t divulge personally identifiable information, extend the agency and its subcomponents’ visibility into multiple supply chains—and more. 

Homeland Security leverages SVIP to invest in technological solutions that can be rapidly prototyped, and holds promise to modernize its own capabilities. Blockchain is a contemporary technology that tracks, records and authenticates information and transactions. Recognizing the burgeoning tech’s potential to transform its internal pursuits, the department launched a “Preventing Forgery and Counterfeiting of Certificates and Licenses” solicitation in 2018 calling

Emerging Markets Rebound As Normalcy Recovers

Emerging markets are in the process of economic healing despite the uneven impact of COVID-19. Lower rates and higher fiscal spend have created a significant rebound, but at what cost? We strive to isolate the truly exceptional, structural growth companies from the noise and market volatility of ongoing macro events. Additionally, it is worth pointing out that risk aversion has disproportionately affected small- and mid-cap stocks in emerging markets. As markets normalize, we believe it is reasonable to expect relative outperformance from these smaller stocks. As a “true” all capitalization strategy, these changes in sentiment can materially affect the relative performance of our portfolio.

As the third quarter unfolded, so did the ongoing rebound of emerging markets economies. Easing of virus restrictions, coupled with supportive emerging markets government policies, boosted growth across emerging markets. Indeed, emerging markets governments around the world continued offering fiscal stimuli, including discretionary easing and loan

New navigation technology helps F-22 sharpen angles of attack

The success of high-speed air-to-air combat engagement accelerated flight into enemy fire against air-defenses, aerial surveillance missions, and precision-strikes on enemy ground targets of course rest upon a pilot’s ability to know a plane’s exact location, movement patterns and angle of attack.

This kind of combat operation is often heavily interwoven with, or even reliant upon, “secured” navigational systems such as GPS and Inertial navigational technologies. GPS, while ubiquitous and critical to military operations, is also known to in some cases be vulnerable to hacking, jamming and various kinds of enemy intrusion. The risk of having combat maneuvers and tactics compromised is therefore significant, a circumstance that continues to inspire widespread Pentagon efforts to both “harden” GPS and establish supplemental and alternative guidance systems.

An emerging, shoe-box size navigation capability is being developed to address these challenges and vastly improve and strengthen what’s known as positioning, navigation and timing (PNT)

The IMF forecast a 2020 global contraction of 4.4% in its latest World Economic Outlook, an improvement over a 5.2% contraction predicted in June, when pandemic-related business closures reached their peak.

The global economy will return to growth of 5.2% in 2021, the IMF said, but the rebound will be slightly weaker than forecast in June, partly due to the extreme difficulties for many emerging markets and a slowdown in the reopening of economies due to the
