  1. Wearable Smart Chemical Sensors

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: HSB0171006

    Toxic Industrial Chemicals (TICs) are a great concern for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) since they would be easier for terrorists to obtain and use than Chemical Warfare Agents (CWAs). Hence, a wearable low cost (less than $50) multi-gas sensor is needed to alert first responders to the type and level of hazard they face. Such wearable sensors will also find use in the much bigger ...

  9. Wearable Smart Chemical Sensors

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: HSB0171006

    Toxic Industrial Chemicals (TICs) are chemical substances that produce toxic effects if given in sufficient quantities and/or exposed for long durations. TICs are a great concern for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) since it would be easier for terrorists to obtain and use than CAs. There are many commercially available handheld and personal gas monitors to monitor TICs. However, the ...
