Abstract:

This article explains some of the technology involved in advancing and integrating development of the ultra-sensitive Surface-Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy SERS-based hardware, the Knowledge Amplification by Structured Expert Randomization KASER anthrax detector, the Joint Warning and Reporting Network JWARN Component Interface Device JCID-on-a-chip firmware, and the Holster sensor-network infrastructure. This research has two major thrusts. One is the development of new, next-generation individual and arrayed chemical and biological sensors. The other is the integration of these sensors into a network in which intelligent software agents, data-fusion algorithms, and expert systems can enhance the users ability to retrieve and understand the data, and to act efficiently on the results.
