Abstract: First responders such as law enforcement, fire department and emergency service personnel are subject to hazardous environments, including Toxic Industrial Chemicals (TICs). Protecting first responder and their long term health is a priority of the Department of Homeland Security. The objective of the proposed SBIR project is to develop a wearable chemical sensor badge capable of detecting at least four of the targeted high priority Toxic Industrial Chemicals (TICs). The badge will be designed to be worn by first responders, and will provide a visible and auditory alarm if TICs are present at a dangerous level. To enable everyday use by first responders, the badge will be small, lightweight, low-cost and rugged. In phase 1, Morphix will develop a design for the badge, and will conduct proof-of-concept evaluation of the badge concept in a variety of environmental conditions. Morphix intends to market this wearable badge to federal, state and local law enforcement, emergency medical service and other first responders.
