The Homeland Security Institute

The Homeland Security Institute at BGU will group together under one roof scientists, researchers and technology experts from a variety of disciplines, including mechanical engineers, geographers, computer scientists, emergency medicine specialists, biotech-engineers, civil engineers, chemists, and more.

Together and independently, the members of this Institute are researching and developing homeland security technologies to protect:

  • The national borders of Israel from attacks originating on land, at sea or from the sky
  • Israel’s "virtual environment" with a special focus on cyber security and the integrity of its telecommunications systems
  • The social well-being of Israeli society-at-large

Building a State-of-the-Art Facility

The Homeland Security Institute building will be a state-of-the-art facility capable of supporting the sophisticated research and development infrastructure so critical to the field. It will include:

  • Dedicated space for robotics research
  • A clean room
  • Specialized simulation laboratories
  • A vibration-free/floating-floor laboratory
  • Sophisticated instrumentation for imaging and detection

It will also include extensive outdoor testing grounds that will ensure that University-initiated research yields practical applications beneficial for Israel’s homeland security needs.
