DADSS started as a national program, but we’re excited to be forming new partnerships in the states to carry out the development process on the ground.
In December 2016, Virginia became the first state to enter into a voluntary partnership with the DADSS program as federal and Virginia state officials announced $5.1 million in federal grant funding to help further develop and deploy DADSS. The state will be involved at various levels, from manufacturing and vehicle integration, to field operational tests, as well as public awareness and acceptance. States are a natural partner for the deployment of the technology across the country, and we look forward to working with Virginia officials in 2017.
