PRESENT SOLICITATIONS

NDIA Homeland Security Symposium

hsarpa contributions to critical infrastructure protection portfolio
HSARPA Contributions to Critical Infrastructure Protection Portfolio
  • System Study for Municipal Domestic Water Security
    • Cross-cutting project involving multiple portfolios. Concerns include:
      • CIP: Damage to the physical components of the purification and distribution system or resulting from the trusted insider threat.
      • Biological countermeasures: The near-end-user distribution components of the system involving a hydrolytically robust threat with sufficient toxicity / morbidity to impact even in highly diluted concentrations.
      • Radiological / nuclear countermeasures: Potential for having to decontaminate significant portions of the distribution system.
      • Chemical countermeasures: Post-event system re-certification challenge.

NDIA Homeland Security Symposium

slide12

Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Program FY 04.2

SBIR Topic Number H-SB04.2-003

  • Alternatives to Cl2 in Municipal Water Purification
  • Objective: Identify and produce large quantities of an alternative to Chlorine for the purpose of disinfecting municipal water supplies in a more cost effective and safer manner than currently exists
  • Alternate focus: Ultimately decrease the amount of disinfection byproducts associated with the use of Chlorine

NDIA Homeland Security Symposium

slide13

Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Program FY 04.2

SBIR Topic Number H-SB04.2-003

  • Three Phase effort:
    • Phase I – Identify and demonstrate the ability of an alternative that inactivates microbial pathogens and prevents re-growth in representative samples
    • Phase II – Demonstrate the cost effectiveness and safety of identified alternatives and demonstrate the reduced amount of secondary disinfectants required to ensure adequate residual disinfection
    • Phase III – Commercial Applications

NDIA Homeland Security Symposium

slide14

Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Program FY 04.2

SBIR Topic Number H-SB04.2-004

  • Wide-Area TIC Neutralization
  • Objective: Identify and demonstrate safer and more cost effective alternatives to using typical techniques for wide area TIC neutralization
  • Current methods have deployment shortcomings
    • Cost of Storage
    • PPE requirements
    • Clean-up costs
    • Substrate damage

NDIA Homeland Security Symposium

slide15

Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Program FY 04.2

SBIR Topic Number H-SB04.2-004

  • Three Phase effort:
    • Phase I - Demonstrate broad spectrum utility and economic advantage of alternatives when applied to acids, bases, oxidizing and reducing agents, and hydrolytically stable TICs

FUTURE SOLICITATIONS

NDIA Homeland Security Symposium

baa 04 10 low vapor pressure chemical detection system lvpcds
BAA 04-10: Low Vapor Pressure Chemical Detection System (LVPCDS)
  • Objective: Develop, field-test, and transition to commercialization state-of-the-art components and systems required to effectively detect toxic low vapor pressure compounds
  • The LVPCDS Program will facilitate a number of HSARPA’s goals, including:
    • Enabling future enhancements to existing detection components and systems;
    • Enabling new types of detection components and systems;
    • Creating next generation components and systems which are robust against novel and engineered threats

NDIA Homeland Security Symposium

slide18

BAA 04-10: Low Vapor Pressure Chemical Detection System (LVPCDS)

  • BAA addresses several separate Technical Topic Areas (TTAs)
    • Each TTA solicits a specific approach or tool to augment the Nation’s detection and analysis capabilities
    • Some TTAs are for component development
    • Some TTAs are for detection system development
  • BAA to be released end of May
