A US Government-sponsored market survey is underway on biosurveillance
hardware systems which have applicability in assessing human exposure to
chemical, biological, and radiological agents. This effort includes all
forms of CHEMICAL, BIOLOGICAL, and RADIOLOGICAL analysis platforms.
See e-mail below for more information.
If you are not in an organization that develops or markets such
detection and analysis systems, please forward this e-mail to your
contacts in the research and industry that may be able to contribute to
this market survey.
Note: National Security Technologies, LLC is not associated with the
compilation of this survey. I am just forwarding the request for
Counter Terrorism Operations Support (CTOS)
Center for Radiological/Nuclear Training at the Nevada National Security
Site (formerly the Nevada Test Site)

Subject: US Gov't Launches Market Survey
You are Invited to Participate at www.biodetectorsmarketsurvey.com:
The Joint Program Executive Office for Chemical and Biological Defense
and the Defense Threat Reduction Agency/Joint Science and Technology
Office have tasked the U.S. Army Edgewood Chemical Biological Center and
Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory to compile a technology survey
on biosurveillance hardware systems which have applicability in
assessing human exposure to chemical, biological, and radiological
agents. This survey is targeting information on commercially available
and maturing diagnostic & identification/detection products that have
technology readiness levels from TRL 4 to TRL 9 which does not include
basic research concepts (1). The information you provide will be used
for inclusion in a product guide and may be used for planning purposes
by the U.S. government.
Our interest lies in everything from manual systems to fully automated
technologies, as we anticipate acquiring several technologies to be used
in applications ranging from field work to diagnostic laboratory
analysis. Unlike previous market surveys this effort includes all forms
of CHEMICAL, BIOLOGICAL, and RADIOLOGICAL analysis platforms. The focus
of this survey is on the hardware systems and information on software
that supports biosurveillance efforts will be collected under a separate
This technology survey will have a WIDE DISTRIBUTION throughout the
ENTIRE chemical, biological, and radiological defense research
community. Please do not submit proprietary or classified information.
For your system to be included please complete a separate survey for
each system of interest. After you have completed the survey please be
sure to email an electronic image of your product with the questionnaire
(preferably JPEG images at 300 dpi) that we can use with the completed
market survey as requested in question #3. If you have more than one
electronic image for a system, you can send another but only a single
image per product will be selected.
We appreciate your participation in this process and look forward to
receiving your completed online surveys by February 2, 2011 when the
website will close and the results will be compiled. More detailed
instructions are on the following page of this survey and if you have
additional questions please feel free to contact me.
