DARPA Tests Advanced Chemical Sensors

Next-generation algorithms and sensors for detecting chemical threats put through their paces in SIGMA+ program. May hold promise for military use in development of large region scale chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and explosive threat threat detection networks. DARPA’s SIGMA program, which began in 2014, has demonstrated a city-scale capability for detecting radiological and nuclear threats

New Fabric Coating Could Thwart Chemical Weapons, Save Lives

Chemical weapons are nightmarish. In a millisecond, they can kill hundreds, if not thousands. But, in a study published in the ACS journal Chemistry of Materials, scientists report that they have developed a way to adhere a lightweight coating onto fabrics that is capable of neutralizing a subclass of these toxins — those that are

Active Infrared Spectroscopy Chemical Detection for Weapons, Poisons and Narcotics

WRIGHT-PATTERSON AFB, Ohio, 4 Feb. 2016. Sensors experts at Leidos Inc. in Reston, Va., are developing a lightweight battery-operated chemical detection system that detects explosives, chemical weapons, poisonous chemicals, and narcotics using active infrared spectroscopy. Officials of the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, announced $17.9 million contract to Leidos
