Sensor Systems for Biological Agent Attacks:

4.11 - 1251 ratings - Source



Over the last ten years, there has been growing concern about potential biological attacks on the nation's population and its military facilities. It is now possible to detect such attacks quickly enough to permit treatment of potential victims prior to the onset of symptoms. The capability to qdetect to warnq, that is in time to take action to minimize human exposure, however, is still lacking. To help achieve such a capability, the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) asked the National Research Council (NRC) to assess the development path for qdetect to warnq sensors systems. This report presents the results of this assessment including analysis of scenarios for protecting facilities, sensor requirements, and detection technologies and systems. Findings and recommendations are provided for the most probable path to achieve a detect-to-warn capability and potential technological breakthroughs that could accelerate its attainment.1.1-2.1 I¼m .65-1.1 I¼m 40% 30% 20% 10% Sampling from Building Ductwork 0% Bioaerosol monitoring in critical 1 2 3 4 5 6 government and civilian buildings can be partially ...
