Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $555,191)

The University of Maryland's Capital Wireless Information Net (CapWIN) proposes to develop a handheld application for law enforcement that will support critical functions for officers in the field and improve the kind, quality and efficiency of operational information it delivers. The proposed system will be designed to be platform-independent, scalable across agencies, and able to evolve with inevitable changes in technology and user requirements. The result will be a thoroughly field tested, Government-Off-The-Shelf (GOTS), open source framework, and will be made available to government agencies for implementation and adaptation to their operational purposes.
