The of Justice has awarded a $254,889 grant to the New Jersey Institute of so the Newark university can continue its child-proof smart gun technology, of New Jersey’s congressional delegation today.

NJIT has spent the last years on a dynamic grip technology that can identify gun based on how they squeeze the The technology uses sensors in the gun to identify unconscious, reflexive unique to each person and decides whether the gunman is to fire the weapon.

University officials say it works 99 of the time when paired an off-the-shelf handgun outfitted green and red lights to indicate the embedded circuitry decided to or not. They have it successfully with shooters gloves, under timed to simulate stressful conditions and alternate hands.

They to use the $254,889 federal grant to a working handgun prototype includes an electronic firing said Donald Sebastian, vice president for research and at NJIT. Having a prototype an electronic firing mechanism free up space in the handgun for the circuitry and battery needed to the dynamic grip recognition.

The project team looks to using this new grant to the challenge of adding firing to produce a complete prototype that validates the child-safe concept, he said.

The funding was added as an earmark to year’s annual Congressional bill by U.S. Senators R. Lautenberg (D-NJ) and Robert (D-NJ) and U.S. Rep. Pascrell, Jr. (D-8th District).

From aspirin to cigarette lighters and baby car the government has wisely implemented guidelines. Yet handguns, which a staggering number of kids, been off limits to safety With this critical funding, NJIT will its national leadership in developing smarter guns.
