Project: Micro-Aerodynamic Lens (µADL) Array Aerosol Concentrator

Overview of R&D project for the Defense Threat Reduction Agency:

Functional Injection Molded Prototype
  • Develop rugged, reliable, high-performance aerosol concentrators
  • Achieve flow rates up to 1000 lpm
  • Achieve concentration factors > 1000:1
  • Develop interfaces to bio-agent trigger detectors

Benefits of this technology include:

  • Reduction of response time and detection limits of existing and emerging bio-aerosol detectors
  • Reduction of bio-aerosol detector power consumption, size, weight and cost

Applications of this technology include:

Narrow Beam Delivery of Concentrated Aerosol
  • Chemical and biological agent detection (military and civilian security applications)
  • Environmental (atmospheric pollution) monitoring
  • Industrial compliance monitoring
  • Industrial process monitoring and control
  • Personal exposure monitoring
  • Aerosolized materials processing
  • Biomedical: respiratory disease diagnosis, health care facility air monitoring
