"I am pleased to submit the following report, 'Results of Fiscal Year 2015 Research and Development,' which has been prepared by the Science and Technology Directorate (S&T). The report has been compiled pursuant to language in Senate Report 114-68 accompanying the Fiscal Year (FY) 2016 Department of Homeland Security (P.L. 114-113). We are beginning to see results from our new Apex programs. In FY 2015, the Next-Generation First Responder Apex executed S&T's first prize competition and launched S&T's first accelerator program to take advantage of start-ups and small businesses. In FY 2015, our Data Analytics Engine operationalized big data tools with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement that are already creating new leads for investigators. They also continued support for data projects across DHS such as the Transportation Security Administration's (TSA) ongoing rollout and expansion of the TSA Pre™ program. This reflects how valuable S&T's new engine programs, which are crosscutting by design and reach across S&T's and Department's full range of missions, will be moving forward."
