Abstract:

Atmospheric Glow Technologies proposes to develop an innovative Mobile AtmosphericGlow Decontamination (MAGDEC) system based upon the patented One Atmosphere UniformGlow Discharge Plasma (OAUGDP) technology. This advanced system will be adeployablemilitary protection system that will decontaminate highly toxic chemicals andmicroorganisms on sensitive equipment, personnel protective equipment, and aircraft,vehicle, and shelter interiors. Phase I efforts will focus on neutralizationofchemicals while Phase II efforts will extend studies to biological warfare agentsincluding spores, building upon the proven efficacy of the OAUGDP against a widerange of microorganisms. Phase II work will conclude with testing additionalsimulants and,where possible, CBW agents themselves in collaboration withresearchers at Aberdeen Proving Ground.The completion of this Phase I effort will result in the design of the MAGDEC systemfor the decontamination of chemical warfare agents. The success of thePhase I andPhase II projects will provide the military with a singular means to achievebiological and chemical decontamination of equipment ranging from robust vehiclesto sensitive electronic equipment within minutes with no significant productionofharmful by-products. An additional arena of use for our design could includedomestic Hazardous Materials Management Teams charged with decontaminating buildings or industrial sites following spills or terrorist events.
