State Dept Launches Arms Control, Inspection Tech Challenge

Department of the statesThe State Department has begun a contest that seeks mobile applications and other tools that can help U.S. inspectors monitor foreign nations’ adherence to arms control treaties, Nextgov reported Tuesday.

Joseph Marks writes information about the agency’s Innovation in Arms Control Challenge was posted Monday on the Innocentive website.

According to the post, State will award $10,000 in prizes to any technology developer who can support the country’s arms control mission.

The department held a similar competition last year concerning arms control crowdsourcing and the grand prize went to a blog that works to raise public awareness about nuclear issues, Marks says.

Nextgov reports interested parties have until October 2013 to submit their written proposals.
