  2. Mobile Analytical Platform for Lead Detection in Drinking Water

    SBC: NANOSAFE, INC.            Topic: 16NCER4C

    As recent crises in Flint, Michigan and Washington D.C. have demonstrated, elevated lead levels (ELL’s) can very suddenly and unexpectedly be introduced to water supplies through seemingly unrelated water system alterations. Ingestion of even trace amounts of lead can have detrimental permanent health effects, especially in children; the public is rightly concerned about lead content in the wate ...

  6. Balloon Platforms for Remote Sensing of Water Quality in Mixing Zones

    SBC: MixZon, Inc.            Topic: 05NCERD4

    MixZon, Inc., hypothesizes that lightweight infrared (IR) and video cameras mounted on an unmanned tethered helium balloon accessible via a wireless network can remotely sense water quality at site scales. MixZon will demonstrate the technical feasibility of a ground-based network to monitor and control balloon-mounted, IP-enabled wireless IR and video cameras for measurement of the spatial distri ...
