BGU is developing technologies that address Israel’s security challenges and those of its allies.

Scientists at BGU’s Homeland Security Institute are developing autonomous vehicles for air, land and sea, keeping people out of harm’s way. They’re building resilient structures that withstand rockets, artillery shells and earthquakes. New remote sensing technologies are being used for anomaly and target detection, and protection of infrastructure and borders. A micro-satellite is being designed and launched into space. Sensors are being developed to identify bio and chemical contaminants, and measures are being taken to safeguard water supplies. BGU’s emergency response team is prepared to minimize the impact in the event of a tragedy, and cyber scientists are keeping “virtual” borders safe.

“Cyber attacks are becoming more and more sophisticated, so we must have the ability to look for anomalies that nobody has yet discovered. We train the systems to identify and handle problems.”
– Prof. Bracha Shapira

Help safeguard Israel and its allies by supporting technology development, research fellowships and sophisticated equipment.
