BayFirst provides program management and systems engineering support on a range of law enforcement and intelligence information sharing programs focused on the coordinated research, development, test, and evaluation of new technologies to support secure methods for dissemination of threat information among federal, state, local, and tribal government entities. Examples of these information sharing programs include the following:
- Development and deployment of a wireless federated query application that enables law enforcement personnel to concurrently query a number of commonly used regional and national law enforcement databases.
- Development of digital image exchange specifications and a pilot software interface to enable state and local law enforcement personnel to query and retrieve driver’s license photos across state lines.
- Design, development, and evaluation of a series of pilots that integrate “data cube” technology into existing enforcement information systems.
- Deployment of a commercial law enforcement information and knowledge management system to consolidate records management data from multiple regional jurisdictions.
- Test and evaluation of a variety of handheld devices, commercial services, and wireless information sharing applications (e.g., situational awareness, field interview, GPS assisted alerts and notifications, real-time computer aided dispatch, and biometrics) for use by federal, state and local law enforcement personnel.
- Test and evaluation of a knowledge discovery framework that ingests, analyzes, synthesizes, and visualizes massive amounts of information from multiple, distributed, and disparate data sources.
- Development and deployment of a spatial temporal and criminal activity network visualization toolset for law enforcement organizations.
