New SENSENET PROJECT begins for Department of Homeland Security

September 3, 2016

InnovaPrep is pleased to announce a Phase II subcontract award from its partner, ENSCO, Inc., prime contractor for the SenseNet Program on behalf of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Science & Technology Directorate. The goal of the DHS SenseNet Project is to develop and demonstrate a tiered aerosol detection sensor architecture that combines low cost and rapid dedicated environmental monitoring detectors with newly emerging commercial sensors that will be utilized by citizens and facility owners for air quality, pollution tracking, and building efficiency purposes.

InnovaPrep will support Phase II of the SenseNet Bio project in response to requirements of an indoor biomonitoring system. The InnovaPrep Bobcat Aerosol Collection platform was selected for this architecture. Work has already begun on Phase IIA that consists of development and laboratory testing/demonstration in a contract laboratory to meet the detection and sustainability goals of the project.

InnovaPrep’s  23 pending and awarded patents apply to highly effective collection, recovery, and concentration of biological particles from air, surfaces, and liquids. InnovaPrep’s Wet Foam ElutionTM process underlies many of these patents and enables recovery of particles from filters, membranes, surfaces, and objects to greatly improve detection of harmful pathogens. The Bobcat Dry Filter Collection and Rapid Wet Foam Elution technology was also the selected platform for the recent US ARMY’s Joint Biological Tactical Defense System (JBTDS) as well as The Joint United States Forces Korea Portal and Integrated Threat Recognition, known as JUPITR, a program led by the Joint Program Executive Office for Chemical and Biological Defense.

ENSCO, Inc., and its wholly owned subsidiaries operate in the defense, transportation, aerospace and intelligence sectors with locations throughout the United States and around the world.
