PSCR Announces Augmented Reality Competition
Thursday, September 10, 2020 | Comments

The National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST) Public Safety Communications Research (PSCR) division announced the NIST Public Safety Innovation Accelerator Program Augmented Reality (PSIAP-AR) competition.

The PSIAP-AR funding opportunity aims to implement technology that will enable researchers to test and develop user interfaces to enhance public safety. Projects funded under the PSIAP-AR program can help achieve this by creating new technology or applying current technology to a specific public-safety use case. Recipients may also conduct research to support the use of AR hardware and applications including cybersecurity, usability and human-computer interaction. The research and development (R&D) produced from the awards made under this notice of funding opportunity (NOFO) should aid in the future development and adoption of AR systems for first responder operations.

NIST anticipates funding up to $5 million in new awards. Funds are expected to range from $300,000 to $600,000 per year per project. Project performance periods may be up to two years, with the exception of proposals submitted by institutions of higher education for the purposes of supporting research by graduate students as part of a doctoral program, for which the period of performance may be up to three years.

Applications for the funding challenge are due no later than 11:59 p.m. ET on Oct. 1. Find more information on the funding opportunity here.
