DHS - ExecutiveMosaicThe Department of Homeland Security has launched an industry solicitation for rugged wearable electronic devices to monitor the health of canine dogs operating under tough conditions, Military & Aerospace Electronics reported Wednesday.

John Keller writes that DHS seeks a wearable contraption meant to gather field intelligence and canine health data without negative impact on the dogs“™ performance as part of the K9 Wearable Technologies project.

DHS intends for the dog-wearable electronics to collect and transmit canine health status, retrieve and analyze vital signs and maintain the canine sensor tool, according to the report.

The department plans to award separate contracts valued between $50,000 and $200,000 with a performance period of up to six months under the program’s first phase, Keller reports.

After the initial prototypes, DHS mulls extension of work with longer contracts valued at up to $800,000 for two years, the report said.
