Subject: Fwd: Fwd: [nws_cap_notification] Research funding opportunity for Commercial Mobile Alerts

Just saw this and thought I would pass it along. DMI is the Disaster Management Initiative at Carnegie Mellon Silicon Valley, of which I am also a member. So if you are interested I would be happy to pass this along.

Actual DHS funding... that doesn't happen a lot these days.  I have some background in this area, and would be happy to team with some academics and/or other DMI members on a proposal.

To: "Notify NWS Common Alerting Protocol (CAP) on Status of Bugs and Enhancements" <nws_cap_notification@infolist.nws.noaa.gov>

As you may be aware, commercial wireless carriers will be leveraging NWS Common Alerting Protocol (CAP) feeds to broadcast 90 character geographically targeted Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA) to mobile devices over the Commercial Mobile Alert System (CMAS).  See CAP v1.2 and Wireless Emergency Alerts Rolling Out in the April 2012 edition of the NWS Aware Report for more information.

We want to let you know that the Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate (DHS S&T) has announced a funding opportunity for research related to CMAS.  DHS is looking for academic institutions, private sector organizations, government laboratories, and other entities to perform RDT&E activities that improve CMAS geo-targeting capabilities and enhance understanding of public response to CMAS messages as follows. 

- Public Response: Research to better understand how the public will respond to alert and warning messages on mobile devices
- Diverse Populations: Research to better understand how to ensure the same timely and effective access to alerts and warnings for diverse populations including persons with functional and access needs, transients/tourists, elderly/older, isolated/rural populations, institutional populations, and non-English speaking people
- Geo-Targeting: Research to better determine when more granular geo-targeting is appropriate and how broadly targeting should be extended from the point of an incident as well as Identification, testing, and evaluation of technologies that provide the capability of more granular geo-targeting.
Please do not respond directly to this email.  See http://firstresponder.gov/FRBlog/Post.aspx?ID=70 for details about this opportunity.  You may contact mike.gerber@noaa.gov if you have any questions regarding NWS produced CAP or NWS activities related to CMAS/WEA.
