Commentary and Opinions

Many local governments struggle to find a highly effective security solution they can depend on. The needs of a government organization are different from corporate or home users, and the security tools they implement must reflect their specific needs. With shrinking budgets and limited IT resources, security products must be simple and cost-effective, without sacrificing performance or functionality.
A wireless sensor network system developed by Lockheed Martin can revolutionize the way users obtain discreet persistent situational awareness and characterization of their surroundings, says the company in an Oct. 12 news release. The Self-Powered Ad-hoc Network (SPAN) system, a network of "Field-and Forget" ground sensors, provides unobtrusive, continuous surveillance supporting multiple missions and applications.
By Rep. Bennie G. Thompson (D-MS) Today, we meet to discuss this nation’s progress in bringing about safety, security and resiliency against terrorism since the attacks of 9/11.  But before we look back, I want to acknowledge and remember all the firefighters, police officers, and ordinary people who lost their lives that Tuesday morning. Remembering those who died must inspire us to make this nation better and safer. 
By Rep. James Langevin (D-RI)The importance of SOF in today’s fight, while so often in the shadows, was brought into the spotlight during the daring raid into Abbottabad Pakistan back in May. All of us in this room and, in fact, the nation, owe a debt of gratitude to the men and women who serve with you in SOCOM. 
America is immeasurably more secure today at the tenth anniversary of 9/11 because of the enormous energy, resources, leadership, planning, and blood that we have poured into our national military and domestic security efforts.  On 9/11, we lost nearly 3,000 innocent Americans, murdered while going about their daily lives. It was an attack of great cleverness, great daring, great surprise and simplicity. This was the greatest single loss of American life since the Battle of Antietam.
