SAN DIEGO, Dec. 14, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Patriot Scientific Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: PTSC) today reported that its wholly owned subsidiary, Patriot Data Solutions Group (PDSG), was selected to work on a proof of capability pilot project for the Louisiana District Attorney Association (LDAA).
PDSG will implement its Crossflo DataExchange® (CDX) platform to automate the transmission of the Automated Fingerprint Identification System (AFIS) arrest data between the Louisiana State Police and two Parish District Attorney Offices.
The money provided to LDAA for the pilot project, entitled the Arrest Information eXchange System (AIXS), came through a Bureau of Justice Assistance Grant program, and requires that the data exchanges conform to federal technology standards, including the National Information Exchange Model (NIEM). The BJA grant also specified that each selected District Attorney Office have a different case management system, since there are multiple case management systems being used by LDAA members in the State. PDSG will be working on the project with Geocent, LLC, a Louisiana-based information technology services company.
"The current process that requires District Attorney staff to manually enter paper-based arrest data will become an automated one thanks to our CDX platform," said Brian Mooney, Senior Vice President of Operations at PDSG. "This will result in reduced personnel time and effort while also shrinking the potential for human errors and thus increasing the department's productivity and efficiency. We are delighted to have been chosen by LDAA to participate in this project and to have the opportunity to work with Geocent, one of the fastest growing businesses in New Orleans and a recipient of several innovation awards."
CDX is built on well-established standards set forth by appropriate governing bodies to ensure that organizations have the foundation by which data can be transferred between systems without undue costs and manpower expenditures. Through PDSG's CDX platform, the AFIS arrest data will be electronically initiated in the two Louisiana Parish's case management systems, pre-populating the records' fields.
