Abstract
Current approaches for protecting military facilities and personnel from biological threats principally involve installations of particulate filtration for fixed facilities or individual protection equipment (IPE). This project intends to develop a system that is rapidly deployable, but provides a protective environment similar to a fixed facility, but on the larger scale of one or more city blocks. Challenges associated with creating such a system include quickly and cost effectively achieving pressurization in a large facility, where typical building retrofits are not possible, and deploying the system in such as way to have minimal impact on operations. Toyon Research and HDT Global propose to develop a system composed of a mobile Collective Protective system, which employs the latest in neutralization technologies to clean very large airflows, and a biological monitoring network composed of emerging trigger-identifier sensors. The system utilizes a Command and Control / Decision Support System to integrate these components for an operator. The Concept of Operations (ConOps) involves initially activating the mobile ColPro unit upon a biological detection. In Phase I, we will conduct a rigorous system study to define the system architecture and collect test data to demonstrate feasibility of the envisioned ConOps.
