AiRANACULUS to Develop AI-Based Biological, Chemical Threat Warning System Under DTRA Contract

Technology company AiRANACULUS has announced that it received a Defense Threat Reduction Agency contract to create an artificial intelligence-based chemical and biological threat warning system.

AiRANACULUS will demonstrate a platform alerting warfighters to possible exposure to chemical and biological threats and prevent them. The company will gather data from existing wearable devices that capture basic vital signs and use deep learning and AI techniques to predict and prevent exposure.

The platform can also differentiate and account for different factors to minimize false positive results. It also has other public health implications, such as vital signs monitoring, infectious disease monitoring and control and predictive in-home preventive care, AiRANACULUS said Tuesday.

The Department of Defense has been working on human performance technologies supporting warfighters in the field.

In mid-May, the Air Force Research Laboratory-led Nano-Bio Materials Consortium sought proposals for wearable transdermal, subcutaneous and textile-based sensors for human performance monitoring and augmentation. According to an NBMC request for proposals, the systems must wirelessly communicate and monitor servicemen’s physical and cognitive status in real time and detect human and environmental health and hazards.
