This matrix, developed by the U.S. Army Edgewood Chemical and Biological Center (ECBC) matches various decontamination methods against chemical and biological threats. It gives summary information as well as links to appropriate reference documents. This information is only available to registered responders and Federal government users.
The goal of TechSolutions is to field technologies that meet 80% of the operational requirement, in a 12 to 15 month time frame, at a cost commensurate with the proposal (but less than $1 million per project). Goals will be accomplished through rapid prototyping and the identification of existing technologies that satisfy identified requirements.
