The Mobile Officer's Assistant (MOA) is a
system of hand-held computers that enhances the security of law enforcement
officers and facilitates the writing of citations and the transmitting
of information to police and court information systems. MOA obtains
information on registration violations, stolen vehicles, and outstanding
warrants almost instantly and without involving busy dispatchers and
radio channels. MOA captures data from the magnetic stripes or bar
codes on drivers' licenses and uses the information to create a traffic
citation automatically. Officers may use drop-down menus, a soft keyboard,
and/or handwriting recognition to enter data. Motorists sign their
names on the computer screen, and then the electronic tickets are
"beamed" to a portable printer that produces a paper copy
for the motorist. MOA instantly transmits a digital version of the
citation to police headquarters and the courts for timely processing,
and without further human intervention. The system was initially tested
in San Francisco, California, and is now in operation in Austin, Texas,
and Las Vegas, Nevada.

This 17-minute training video was produced
for the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), based
on research conducted previously by Anacapa Sciences for the Office
of Motor Carriers. The video explains the performance limitations
of large commercial vehicles and illustrates the unsafe driving acts
of motorists that lead to collisions with large trucks on the road.
Although primarily intended for viewing by novice drivers, all motorists
can benefit from the video, regardless of their level of experience
or the type of vehicle they drive.
The video is available free of charge from the Federal Motor Carrier
Safety Administration, in an effort to reduce the incidence of crashes
involving passenger vehicles and large trucks.

Originally developed as a helicopter flight simulator, PRISMS demonstrates
helmet-mounted display (HMD) symbology and provides capabilities
for knowledge acquisition, experimental control, and data recording.
Features include realistic terrain gaming, multiple moving targets,
photo-textured objects, 3D sound, voice synthesis and recognition,
and full flight controls. PRISMS offers an immersive approach with
an opaque visor, providing an effective virtual reality experience,
as well as an accurate head tracker so that symbology positioning
and behavior is appropriately slaved to the user's head movements.
The system is configured to simulate flight through terrain generated
from digital terrain elevation data bases.

Anacapa research identified and validated a set of behavioral cues
that can help patrol officers to detect vehicle operators with blood-alcohol
concentrations (BACs) at 0.08 and above. A detection guide and associated
training video was developed to instruct law enforcement officers
in the accurate detection of alcohol-impaired drivers.

CCAM stands for Compact Computer Aid for Maintenance. CCAM was created
for use by mechanical maintenance personnel who are responsible for
repairing the nation's 100 or so nuclear power plants. CCAM development
was funded by the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI), the R&D
arm of the US power industry. CCAM is a ruggedized, handheld computer
that maintenance personnel can use to help automate several of their
most challenging measurement and calculation tasks. CCAM was developed
through a comprehensive series of surveys, observations, interviews,
demonstrations, and field tests. The video explains in detail the
technical activities associated with each of these steps.
