AWARD: $10,000 USD | DEADLINE: Oct 26, 2012 | InnoCentive Challenge ID: 9933144
Treaties or international arrangements addressing weapons, nonproliferation and confidence building measures are generally known as "arms control." They are diplomatic tools that governments use to regulate weapons (especially weapons of mass destruction), or to increase transparency, predictability and stability.
These treaties or international arrangements support mutual security and stability in general, however, in some situations one or more parties may be motivated to violate these arms control provisions, commonly understood as "cheating." This Challenge seeks creative ideas from the general public to use commonly available devices to support arms control transparency efforts.
This Challenge is being held under the America COMPETES Authority where awards may only be give to individuals (participating singly or in a team) who are citizens or permanent residents of the United States, or private entities that are incorporated in and maintaining a primary place of business in the United States.
