Decontamination Using the One Atmosphere Uniform Glow Discharge Cold Plasma
Agency / Branch:
DOD / ARMY
Atmospheric Glow Technologies (A-G Tech) proposes to develop an innovative mobile Atmospheric Plasma Decon (APD) System based upon the patented One Atmosphere Uniform Glow Discharge Plasma (OAUGDP) technology. This advanced system will be a deployablemilitary protection system that will decontaminate highly toxic chemicals and microorganisms on sensitive equipment, personnel protective equipment, and aircraft, vehicle, and shelter interiors. Phase I efforts demonstrated feasibility of the APD-210 inthe neutralization of chemical warfare simulants (99.3% reduction). Phase II efforts will extend studies to biological warfare agents including spores, building upon the proven efficacy of the OAUGDP against a wide range of microorganisms. During thePhase II contract, the APD device will be optimized for recirculation and air cooling. Studies will be conducted to examine the concentration of plasma produced active species as well as the extent of chemical and biological degradation achieved. Deviceswill be tested for materials and device compatibility. A collaborative relationship is being put in place beteen A-G Tech and Dugway Proving Ground for device efficacy testing with actual chemical and biological agents throughout the length of thecontract period.
