Ocean Systems, the market-leading provider of forensic video analysis and clarification solutions, has been awarded a 2008 Commercial Equipment Direct Assistance Program (CEDAP) grant to provide forensic video and image clarification systems to local public service agencies across the country. The grant is funded through the FEMA National Preparedness Directorate, U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
The CEDAP grant supplies selected qualifying agencies with Ocean Systems dTective® system equipment, the most widely used video, image and audio evidence clarification system available. Additionally, the 2008 grant covers the travel and lodging costs for two agency representatives to receive in-person training on the dTective® system.
"We are extremely excited to have been selected by DHS for this grant," said Angelo Guarino, President, Ocean Systems. "The dTective® System and our new ClearID® product can provide local government agencies with the necessary tools and capabilities they may not otherwise be able to afford."
CEDAP is a highly competitive program that works in conjunction with other DHS grant programs to enhance regional response capabilities, mutual aid, and interoperable communications. The CEDAP grant provides technology and equipment, together with the training and technical assistance required to operate the dTective® equipment, to public safety agencies in smaller jurisdictions and certain metropolitan areas.
Agencies interested in acquiring this equipment should register with the Responder Knowledge Base (RKB) at https://www.rkb.us/ and complete the online application by June 30, 2008, at 5 p.m. EDT.
