Integrated Technology


As you are aware, the COVID-19 virus is disrupting travel across the world and requires organizations to revise their risk management plans. In order to promote the health of Mississippi residents, USM's administration is doing its due diligence, and has restricted travel of University faculty and staff outside of the state and is discouraging travel by anyone to our campuses in Hattiesburg and Long Beach, Mississippi. In order to comply with these administrative changes and travel restrictions, the NSSL has temporarily suspended its lab activities, including lab tests and product reviews, until May 1, 2020. We will continue planning NSSL product reviews and product testing via teleconferences and web-based meetings. We apologize for any inconvenience and look forward to resuming work with you when we are able to do so.

The National Sport Security Laboratory (NSSL) exposes practitioners, researchers, and students to a fully outfitted research, training, and operation center with integrated safety and security technologies. The NSSL derives its unique position through its connectivity to each of the university's three main sports facilities. The M.M. Roberts Stadium (football), Reed Green Coliseum (basketball), and Pete Taylor Baseball Park (baseball) serve as technology, training, and exercising extensions of the lab. The university applies sport safety and security best practices in an environment uniquely designed to integrate people, processes, and technology. Students, practitioners, and solution providers can explore the problems of today and effort to solve the problems of tomorrow.

The NSSL is an operational multiagency coordination center, designed to provide an optimal environment for research, validation, training and operations. A complete list of integrated hardware is available here.

The state-of-the-art audio/visual system allows users to seamlessly coordinate, display, and disseminate information. Lab tested technologies are made available for training, operations, and experimentation. Practitioners can explore and train with capable solutions, while students can build an understanding of the role technologies play in safety and security.
