DNAConnect bridges the gap between law enforcement investigators who want to use Rapid DNA to generate leads and forensic scientists who need to ensure the integrity of Rapid DNA results. DNAConnect integrates non-scientists deployed in the field with DNA analysts in crime laboratories through an automated reachback support system.
Initially funded through a Department of Homeland Security Small Business Innovation Research award, DNAConnect was conceived as the DNA Reachback Support System (RBSS). Based on feedback collected as part of a National Science Foundation grant, SNA enhanced RBSS to meet the needs of state and local law enforcement agencies. The resulting product, DNAConnect, combines years of forensic science and laboratory operations expertise.
Purpose-built by forensic scientists to provide robust support to non-scientific personnel, DNAConnect produces high-quality investigative leads from samples collected at crime scenes and tested on Rapid DNA instruments.
Founded by a distinguished forensic scientist and a visionary technology expert, who successfully guided our organization for over twenty years by understanding the critical necessity for accuracy, timeliness, and efficiency in delivering results. With a proven track record, our expertise spans forensic, biometric, and identity intelligence missions on a global scale. SNA is led by respected authorities in the scientific and technology sectors, with our core values of trust and integrity woven into the fabric of our corporate identity. Our exceptional leadership team continues to instill these values into our culture, driving unwavering excellence in every aspect of operations across a wide range of missions worldwide.
