Security solutions wanted

The Center for Commercialization of Advanced Technology is soliciting industry, government labs and academia for new technologies that can be used in homeland defense.

The center will supply funds and expertise to winning applicants so they can bring their technologies to a wider market, including the Defense Department and civil homeland security agencies.

Applications will be considered until May 15. The center is looking for solutions that will enhance security at borders, critical infrastructure, ports and networks. Defense measures against bioterrorism attacks will also be considered.

The center will offer marketing analysis, assistance in developing a business and independent validation of the technologies. It also will assist in attracting venture capital and future contracts within the defense industry, said Lou Kelly, center chairman.
