Sporian Developing Miniaturized Biological/Chemical Sensor
"The system should be easily adapted to sense a wide variety of chemical or biological targets, but the first targets for the Army are airborne biological threat agents such as Bacillus Anthracis. We expect to develop a reusable system, designed to be highly modular to promote integration with a range of existing, and future, data collection and wireless sensor network systems," said Sporian principal investigator Dr. KaTrina Daniels.
The US Army Engineer Research and Development Center in Alexandria, VA will monitor the results of Sporian's development efforts. Sporian is also working with OEMs to determine functional requirements for the sensor. Beyond the DoD, Sporian recognizes opportunities in environmental monitoring, water quality, health care, and security applications.
