Abstract

Intelligence and security informatics (ISI) is an emerging field of study aimed at developing advanced information technologies, systems, algorithms, and databases for national- and homeland-security-related applications, through an integrated technological, organizational, and policy-based approach. This paper summarizes the broad application and policy context for this emerging field. Three detailed case studies are presented to illustrate several key ISI research areas, including cross-jurisdiction information sharing; terrorism information collection, analysis, and visualization; and "smart-border" and bioterrorism applications. A specific emphasis of this paper is to note various homeland-security-related applications that have direct relevance to transportation researchers and to advocate security informatics studies that tightly integrate transportation research and information technologies.
