The National Institute of Standards and Technology has launched a market survey to identify potential vendors that can offer a technology designed to analyze the interaction between sensors within a limited sensor network for first responders.
A FedBizOpps notice posted Saturday says the agency looks to utilize a multi-protocol analyzer platform that can assess signals and data traffic through wireless communication protocols related to internet of things.
NIST also intends for the system to identify interference or incompatibility sources when multiple sensors are being used in a small area network.
According to the agency, IoT devices use various communication protocols such as Bluetooth Low Energy and IEEE 802.15.4, as well as standards that include WiFi.
Responses to the sources sought notice will be accepted until Aug. 15.
