Description
 
The Department of Homeland Securityäó»s (DHSäó»s) BioWatch program aims to provide early indication of an aerosolized biological weapon attack. Until April 2014, DHS pursued a next-generation autonomous detection technology (Gen-3), which aimed to enable collection and analysis of air samples in less than 6 hours, unlike the current system (Gen-2), which requires manual intervention and can take up to 36 hours to detect the presence of biological pathogens. DHS is taking steps to address this capability gap that resulted from the cancellation of Gen-3 by exploring other technology upgrades and improvements to the Gen-2 system. This report reviewed (1) the technical capabilities of the current BioWatch system; (2) the Gen-3 testing effort; and (3) characteristics of autonomous detection as a possible option to replace the current BioWatch system. This is a print on demand report.
