Role: Systems Engineer
Problem: Canine (K9) mission data and evidence collection is low-tech and passive.
Solution: A self-powered device that provides data collection and communication capabilities. By using the dynamo in a retractable dog leash, it is possible to leverage the canine's kinetic energy. This results in a new source of backup power and a platform for application development to support and enhance K9 missions. Titled the K9 Smart Leash, this self-powered device enables greater situational awareness and limitless operational insights.
