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

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
