DoD to Use Battelle Biological Threat ID Tech in South Korea; Matt Shaw Comments - top government contractors - best government contracting event

battelle - ExecutiveMosaicThe Defense Department has tapped Battelle to deploy the company's bioaerosol threat identification technology in South Korea to help protect warfighters and civilians from biological threats.

DoD will use Battelle’s Resource Effective Bio-Identification System tool to support a biological surveillance mission under the Joint United States Forces Korea Portal and Integrated Threat Recognition program, the company said Thursday.

REBS works to utilize Raman spectroscopy to collect air samples and identify hazardous aerosols and can operate independently from human involvement, Battelle said.

Matt Shaw, general manager for Battelle's chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosives defense business, said the team has worked to accelerate aerosol identification and control life cycle costs in support of the JUPITR program.

DoD’s Joint Program Executive Office for Chemical and Biological Defense leads the program in an effort to fulfill bio-surveillance demands in the Korean Peninsula.
