As the manufacturing industry shifts toward smart technologies and automation, the threat of bad actors compromising industrial capability rises. SecureAmerica Institute partners are developing an external system to identify and prevent robotic untrustworthiness.
The White House and the U.S. Department of Defense partnered with the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station to host a summit in Westlake, Texas, in an effort to improve the supply chain resilience of critical materials.
Threatcasting is a new concept that operates using inputs from social science, technical research, cultural history, economics, trends, expert interviews and science fiction to create potential visions of the future — both good and bad.
From the COVID-19 pandemic to the Ever Given vessel blocking the Suez Canal in Egypt, disruptions in global supply chains can impact daily life. Dr. Eleftherios Iakovou, a member of the SecureAmerica core team, breaks down supply chains and paves the way for a more resilient future for this important process.
We have seen first-hand how public-private partnerships can benefit efforts to improve supply chain resilience. The new SecureAmerica Institute at Texas A&M University is one such a partnership, made up of a network of about 100 partners across several technical domains within the manufacturing base. The program employs a novel interdisciplinary paradigm to build on policy, economics, and supply chain management research and education.
