DTP-079: Bio-Inspired Materials and Devices for Chemical and Biological Defense

DTP-079By: James J. Valdes and Erica R. Valdes

This report addresses materials for synthetic matrices of chemical and biological defense using a conceptual platform known as the abiotic networked threat system (ANTS). This system is based on lessons learned from biology, incorporating abiotic homologues to biological recognition events and metabolic pathways to provide programmable capabilities to sense and respond to environmental threats.
