Reston, VA - The U.S. Homeland Secretary Department's Under Secretary for Science and Technology notified MobilVox that the agency has designated the firm's Diver Situational Awareness System (DSAS) as a developmental test and evaluation (DT&E) Safety Act technology (www.safetyact.gov). The Safety Act, among other things, provides manufacturers and sellers with incentives and protections to develop, commercialize and deploy potentially life-saving anti-terror technologies.
DSAS is a rugged, water-proof portable computer diving tool intended to help military and public safety explosive, ordnance and disposal divers perform hazardous missions more efficiently, effectively and safely - and which allows command and control personnel to better oversee those missions. It was developed by MobilVox software engineers for the U.S. Navy's Office of Naval Research. The tool's computer application is compatible with any portable tablet computer and provides diving teams with real-time access to technical, procedural or mission oriented information needed on diving missions. The system also delivers actionable intelligence combined with geospatial analysis technologies.
MobilVox's President and CEO, Enrique Lenz, stated "I am delighted that the U.S. Homeland Security Department took this action. DSAS (www.divedsas.com) is a state-of-the-art technology which can help federal, state and local U.S. maritime security personnel better protect the American public and our nation's military and commercial ships and seaports and sea-lanes from terrorist sea-borne attacks. And I look forward to working with U.S. maritime security personnel to get the system deployed as soon as possible."
