With this solicitation, NIJ seeks proposals for research and development to enhance forensic crime scene examinations. This solicitation focuses on: •Small, rugged, less costly, and less labor-intensive non-destructive analytical tools and technologies for the onsite presumptive and/or confirmatory analysis of forensic evidence at a crime scene. •Sample location, identification, capture, and stabilization technology suitable for recovery of trace particulate, liquid, chemical, and biological evidence at a crime scene. •Improving basic and fundamental understanding of chemical and/or biological signatures found at crime scenes. Forensic crime scene evidence typically consists of, but is not limited to: latent prints, blood splatter, blood, semen, hairs, fibers, gun shot residue, explosive residue, fire debris, and impression evidence.
