Abstract
Our ability to respond to new chemical and biological threats is limited by a lack of facilities, personnel, and equipment able to rapidly conduct precision molecular analysis. We can remove this bottleneck by deploying a protective network of new automated, high performance surveillance equipment around ordinary warfighters and civilians for the first time. Sensitive enough to detect all manner of chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and explosive threats at close proximal ranges continuously, our technology can be adapted for placement in buildings, on vehicles, drones, etc. Software enabled, it can be thought of as an anti-virus platform for actual viruses and other threats, alerting first responders and gathering critical intelligence about the combat theater. Our prime end user is Edgewood Chemical Biological Center (ECBC), points of contact Josh Israel and Dave Restione, where validation of the advantages of our system will take place in consultation with subject matter expert Dr. Jason Guicheteau. This end-user will use our solution to identify and quantify toxins with greater ease and accuracy than previously possible. If successful, ECBC personnel can make introductions to early adopters and initial transition partners with threat detection and bio-surveillance needs in all service branches, and law enforcement.
