One grant is available to a USA or territories non-profit, business, university, or individual to assist a foreign wildlife service in their anti-poaching efforts. The grantee will assess the aviation and technology needs of the wildlife service, purchase and deliver aircraft to the agency, and conduct an operational evaluation of the purchased planes and technology.
Goals, Objectives, Deliverables, and Expected Scholarly Products:
1. Needs assessment: The awardee, in cooperation with NIJ, will oversee the completion of a technology needs assessment of the Kenyan Wildlife Services (KWS). This will include: a project kick off and customer briefing with the KWS Air Wing staff; the development of a basic needs requirement document with significant KWS input; and the development of a Technical Resource Catalog (TRC) of available light fixed-wing and rotary-wing aircraft and supporting technologies per the needs requirement document.
2. Operational Evaluation: In light of the needs assessment and catalog of available technologies, the awardee will oversee the procurement of the most appropriate technologies to meet the needs of KWS, considering cost-effectiveness, efficacy, durability, and safety (among others). Please note that Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS)/Drones shall not be included in the technology procured. The awardee will then oversee the conduct of an operational evaluation of these technologies to assess their use in the field and short-term impact on illegal activity. The evaluation must be of publishable quality.
3. Final Report: The awardee will then translate the assessments and evaluations for broad application to the KWS and U.S. law enforcement agencies operating in comparable contexts. The final report will include the technical resource catalog, an assessment of technologies appropriate for low-flying law enforcement surveillance missions with a focus on cost-effective, durable, and safe technologies, and key findings from the operational evaluation to inform their use in the field.
