Research Institution
The DoD Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear Defense Program Performance Plan discusses the status of sensing technologies and long-term goals, and shows point biological detection systems are expected to provide 20% of the objective capabilities in FY15. This indicates that there is the need for a man-portable, disposable, rapidly responding biological agent point detector that is capable of several months of unattended operation. Streamline Automation proposes to develop an innovative biological agent sensor in cooperation with ADA Technologies and Williams-Pyro that will build on the development of the ChemPod that is already underway. The BioPod will include capabilities for biological agent sensing and geolocation independent of GPS. It will function as a node in a network of pods (BioPod, ChemPod, WeatherPod), and transmit data that can be sent via satellite uplink to remote monitoring stations. Pod components will be developed on COTS hardware to the maximum extent possible, and software development will use techniques that enhance maintainability.
