Originally devised to be worn by arms inspectors, an electronics-loaded vest has been adapted for use in investigation of crime scenes. The vest, called Team Leader, can contain an array of devices for quickly analyzing and transmitting vast amounts of information. Modules include a geographical information system, a multi-media computer, a digital video and still camera, voice recorder, a barcode scanner, and specialized sensors. Pacific Northwest National Laboratory has teamed with Mnemonic Systems Inc. (Washington, DC) to develop the Team Leader. Phone Mnemonic at (202) 785-4530 or reach them at email@example.com.
