CEDAP (December 2005)
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Office
of State and Local Government Coordination and Preparedness (SLGCP) is providing equipment
to smaller agencies through a new and innovative pilot program. The Commercial Equipment
Direct Assistance Program (CEDAP) is designed to fill gaps with small agencies in
areas of equipment they have not previously been able to acquire through other sources.
In August 2005, AristaTek in conjunction with Davis
Defense Group (DDG) located in
submitted a proposal to the Electronic Proving Grounds Special Programs Office,
that acted as the contracting agency for DHS’s CEDAP. The proposal was reviewed, evaluated,
and was accepted as one of many products to make a presentation to the DHS “subject
matter experts” in Tempe, AZ in September 2005. On October 6, 2005, Davis Defense
Group and AristaTek were notified of acceptance by DHS to the CEDAP.
The PEAC-WMD software will be one of the products
available in the CEDAP catalog, which is to be available for examination on the Responder
Knowledge Base (RKB) http://www.rkb.mipt.org.
