Grants available for sensor and surveillance technologies for criminal justice applications

The National Institute of Justice, the research, development, and evaluation agency of the U.S. Department of Justice, seeks applications for funding research and development of sensor and surveillance technologies.

According to the funding solicitation, those technologies should address the following specific needs of state and local criminal justice agencies:

Detection of the “broad spectrum” of contraband, including metallic and nonmetallic weapons, at any controlled access point. The preferred solution would be a product that, once commercialized, would be commercially available for under $25,000. To prevent contraband from entering correctional facilities, the preferred technology also will be a portal that can detect contraband concealed within body cavities.

Noninvasive, continuous monitoring of a subject’s use of both illegal and prescription substances.
Detection of trace blood at crime scenes from a distance of five feet or greater.

Accurate detection of gunshot residue in the field in real time.

Ability to extract full streams of digital multimedia evidence from incompatible systems, while maintaining the integrity of the metadata.

Applications must be submitted through the Office of Justice Program’s Web-based grants management system, at www.ojp.usdoj.gov/gmscbt.

The funding opportunity number is NIJ-2010-2423. The closing date for applications is March 15, 2009. Amounts and numbers of grants were not specified in the solicitation, and there are no restrictions on applicants.
