Funding Boost for CBRN Sensor Research

Australian researchers are set to receive $1.34 million in funding to develop innovative sensors that detect chemical and biological threats. Included in the projects being funded under the HAC is Gram-scale infra-red spectrometer concept for multi-analyte airborne chemical threat detection. University of Melbourne, Flame Security International.

Defence and the Victorian Defence Science Institute (DSI) are supporting the formation of multidisciplinary teams that will pursue ground-breaking sensor research with funding awarded under the DSI-Hazardous Agent Challenge (HAC).

The projects that are being funded under the HAC are:

  • Gram-scale infra-red spectrometer concept for multi-analyte airborne chemical threat detection. University of Melbourne, Flame Security International.
  • Wireless platform for stand-off detection of chemical hazards. Monash University, University of Melbourne.
  • Sensing platform for defence-relevant airborne chemical threats. University of Melbourne, Monash University, Ideation Product Solutions Pty Ltd.
  • Porous photonic micro cavities – enhanced in-field toxic chemical sensor. Monash University, University of New South Wales and Queensland University of Technology.
