A few weeks ago, S&T’s National Biodefense Analysis and Countermeasures Center provided info on heat + humidity’s effect on the #COVID19 virus. Recently we released a tool to help you calculate the natural decay rate of the virus on indoor surfaces.
@Qualcomm Technologies and @kryptowire demonstrated with S&T how developers and ecosystem partners can improve their existing security models for detecting mobile threats. Learn how in this Snapshot article.
(2) NBACC found that #COVID19 virus does not survive well in saliva as temperature/humidity increases. The virus inactivates quickest in the presence of direct sunlight + appears to survive best in indoor/dry conditions.
New EDGE virtual training platform now available (free) to #firstresponder agencies nationwide. How to get it:
Tracking individuals who are trying to illegally cross our borders is a difficult task. To enhance the abilities of @CustomsBorder Border Patrol agents, S&T developed new training #techtools and capabilities to maximize their performance in the field.
