Pursuing Intelligent Complex Aerosols for Rapid Detection


The IARPA PICARD program intends to develop a fieldable sensing platform for the rapid identification of aerosol particles in plumes. This platform will address both point detection (in situ) and standoff detection capabilities that focus on the complexity of aerosols with non-uniform sizes, structures, and chemical composition as well as dispersion in challenging environments. The goal of PICARD is to develop novel integrated hardware and software tools that will improve the current state of the art with respect to chemical specificity, accuracy, and sensitivity.
