John Federici, a physics professor at NJIT, sees the use of terahertz rays as a critical technology in the defense against suicide bombers and other terrorist activities.  Federici and his research team recently described experimental results from a digital video camera invented in their laboratory that uses a terahertz imaging system.  One day such a device could be used to scan airport passengers quickly and efficiently. “Video-Rate terahertz Interferometric and Synthetic Aperture Imaging” appeared in Applied Optics (July, 2009).  >>
2009
A free, day-long terrorism preparedness symposium covering counter-terrorist strategies and highlighting new and developing technologies to combat threats and regional concerns will be held at NJIT on Nov. 14, 2009, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.   >>
2008
The public is invited to a counter-terrorism symposium tomorrow at NJIT from 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m. The forum will focus on ways to secure schools, health and transportation facilities, protect customs, borders and port security, strengthen emergency response times and more.   >>

Robert Statica, information technology program administrator, director of NJIT's Computer Forensic and Cybersecurity Lab and co-director of NJIT's Center for Information Protection, will discuss cybersecurity and cyberterrorism at an Open University seminar on April 18, 2:30-4 p.m. in the Guttenberg Information Technologies Center, Room 400. >>
2006
The NJ chapter of the Marine Corps Reserve Association and NJIT will sponsor the Counter-Terrorism Symposium on Nov. 11, 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. at NJIT. The keynote speaker for this one-day terrorism preparedness symposium is retired Maj. Gen. George T. Garret, assistant to the director, NJ Office of Homeland Defense. >>
This fall, NJIT will offer to companies and government agencies a practical, hands-on and sophisticated six-course, 18-credit certificate program designed to combat digital and physical terrorism. "Our goal is to create a new generation of counter-terrorism experts and we think the array of in-depth courses we've put together will fit the bill,” said Robert Statica, program director. >>
2005
John Federici, PhD, a professor in the department of physics and other physicists at NJIT recently received a U.S. Patent for a Terahertz imaging system and method. Since 1995, Terahertz imaging has grown in importance as new and sophisticated devices and equipment have empowered scientists to understand its potential. “I see the Terahertz spectrum as one of the critical technologies for defense against suicide bombers and other terrorist activities,” Federici said. >>

New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) hosts a homeland and cyber- security conference, in which counter-terrorist and cyber-terrorist experts from the U.S. Army, industry, government and academia will discuss the current needs and future challenges in homeland and cyber security. >>
If an act of terrorism were to occur again in the New York City region, the Global Positioning System (GPS) base station, located at New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) would go into immediate action. The system, which was used extensively by rescuers during the World Trade center recovery effort, provides very high accuracy positioning, says Joshua Greenfeld, Ph.D., professor of civil and environmental engineering at NJIT. >>
