FY05 DHS Grant Programs Funds

Many of our customers and future customers are looking to purchase the PEAC-WMD software using the FY05 grant funds provided by ODP.  The PEAC-WMD software (both the Windows and the Pocket PC versions) qualifies under the FY05 Homeland Security Grant Program and meets specific categories of the Approved Equipment List (AEL) as found on the Responder Knowledge Base (RKB) located on the web at: http://www2.rkb.mipt.org/

It recently came to AristaTek’s attention that even though the information on the PEAC-WMD software had been passed to the RKB in the spring of 2004, it had not been linked to all the appropriate AEL categories.  This mistake is currently being resolved. 

The following discussion should help a grant applicant who desires to include the PEAC-WMD products on their FY05 Homeland Security Grant Application some assistance in locating the PEAC-WMD products and their proper categories on the AEL.

A grant applicant can view the descriptions of the PEAC-WMD software (both the Windows and Pocket PC versions) and the integrated PEAC-WMD systems (PEAC-WMD for the Pocket PC software on two different types of PDAs).  You must first enter the RKB site (follow the link above) and enter as a “Guest”. You can then do a search for "PEAC-WMD",or simply click here  to view the PEAC-WMD products listed in the AEL on the RKB site.

A screen similar to Figure 1 will appear that displays the current four product descriptions provided to the RKB.  Click on the desired description (PEAC‑WMD for Windows in this example) as shown in Figure 1, and a description similar to that shown in Figure 2 will appear.


Figure 1 – Select the PEAC-WMD product description from the list



Figure 2 – The current PEAC-WMD for Windows Software description on the RKB

Currently the PEAC-WMD software is linked to just a few AEL categories, e.g., the Software, CBRNE/commercial chemical/hazard category under the Information Technology listing.  This can be demonstrated by browsing the AEL and clicking on the Software, CBRNE/commercial chemical/hazard category as shown in Figure 3 (http://www2.rkb.mipt.org/ael_fy2005.cfm ) which will display a screen similar to Figure 4 (http://www2.rkb.mipt.org/contentdetail.cfm?content_id=80397 ).


Figure 3 – A current AEL category linked to the PEAC-WMD software


Figure 4 – The RKB screen provides a link to four product listings related to this AEL category

The RKB screen will display a listing of the four products linked to this AEL category (Figure 5 http://www2.rkb.mipt.org/klinksmore.cfm?content_id=80397&relationtype=10681 ), click on the PEAC-WMD entry and a screen similar to that shown in Figure 2 will appear.

AristaTek has been in contact with the folks that manage the RKB and at a minimum the following AEL categories will be linked to the PEAC-WMD software and integrated system options in the very near future.  If a grant applicant needs additional information or assistance, please contact AristaTek either by phone (toll free) 877-912-2200 or 307-721-2126 or by email: info@aristatek.com.
