PSIAP First Responder 3D Indoor Tracking

aPPLICATION cLOSED 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time, thursday, august 20, 2020.

The NIST Public Safety Innovation Accelerator Program is seeking applicants with expertise in prize competitions to collaborate with technical experts from NIST, industry/academia, and public safety to serve as Prize Administrator in developing and implementing the First Responder 3D Indoor Tracking (FR3D) Prize. The FR3D Prize competition aims to achieve game-changing performance of sensors and systems for localization and tracking of first responders operating indoors in a variety of building environments without any benefit of pre-deployed dedicated infrastructure. The PSIAP seeks to attract experts and innovators from industry and academia to focus on this difficult challenge by offering a monetary prize purse and unique opportunities for live testing and evaluation. Administration of the FR3D Prize will include all aspects of prize development, project management, and execution. 

NIST anticipates funding a single award up to $4,000,000 per year with a project period of performance of two years. Total funding for this program is anticipated to be approximately $8,000,000. This total includes funds for both competition administration and the prize awards for competitors.
