  2. 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 ...

  3. Photochemical ClO2 Decontaminant for Biological Agent Neutralization

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: HSB0142001

    DHS requires the ability to respond to an attack with biological agents. Specifically, it requires a decontaminant to kill anthrax spores on building exteriors and interiors, and other surfaces. In this proposal we describe an innovative bio-agent decon technology that is particularly suitable for decon over wide areas; and as far as we are aware, no other technology in development can be used o ...

  4. Helmet-Mounted Thermal Sensor for First Responder Burn-Saver Device

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: HSB0131003

    The personal protective equipment (PPE) worn by firefighters (turnout Gear, SCBA, helmet, etc.) protects the wearer against burns and hazardous environments. Unfortunately, they work so well that they decrease the firefighter's situational awareness, in particular their ability to notice rapidly increasing temperatures. Although current thermal sensor technologies (generally built in to the Pers ...

  5. GPS JLOC Sensor Suite for Critical Infrastructure

    SBC: NAVSYS CORPORATION, THE            Topic: HSB0131004

    Timing and position data from civil GPS receivers have become integral to the operation of many of the Nation's critical infrastructures. Through the Patriot Watch architecture, DHS is coordinating efforts to identify, locate, and attribute domestic GPS interference, maintain a central database for reports of domestic and international interference to civil use of GPS and its augmentations, and n ...
