The RAND Corporation decided to consolidate the work of RAND Public Safety and Justice, the RAND Homeland Security Center, and RAND Science and Technology units to create a single Infrastructure, Safety and Environment (ISE) research unit. This website describes the Transportation, Space, and Technology program that is part of this unit. The program, which conducts research on "new technologies and their implications for the nation and the world," focuses on transportation systems and regulation, ports, space exploration, information and telecommunications technologies and regulation, federal research and development allocation, and social implications of emerging technologies. Posted here are reports, news releases and other documents highlighting its projects. Recent reports include a study that "finds airliner anti-missile systems too expensive and unreliable" and which concludes that "radio frequency identification reduces workplace privacy." From here, visitors can also learn more about the other programs and centers within the Infrastructure, Safety and Environment research unit.
