Bioterrorism Detection and Immediate
Biodefense and Bioagent Terrorism
Wyatt-Lorenz was founded as a spin-off of Wyatt
Technology Corporation ("WTC") with
a unique mission: To provide immediate
bioterrorism bioagent warning systems for
the protection of people and property from biological
and chemical threats. These Bioterrorism threats
are often directed toward elements of the private
sector long ignored by the Department of Defense
and Department of Homeland Security. Such elements
include shopping centers, public buildings,
convention centers, airports, performing arts
centers, movie theaters, airplane cabins, stadiums,
and many others.
need for immediate
Biodefense warning systems cannot be overemphasized
as they are essential to reduce significantly
the level of casualties and property loss following
a bioterrorist attack. The importance of such
systems was emphasized in
a 1959 brochure prepared by the then Department
of Health Education and Welfare, and largely
ignored during the intervening 60 years.
sensing system will monitor the airborne aerosol
environment constantly to determine whether
a biological terrorist BW attack is in progress.
This system implements
a network of sensors to provide immediate detection
and warnings of bio-terror attacks with
an objective of reducing or eliminating the
impact of bioagent acts.
In addition, the company also intends
to manufacture and sell specialized tools to
be used for detection and remediation of bio-hazards
and forensic purposes following any such terror
key emphasis of the Wyatt-Lorenz sensors system
is to protect the lives and property of those
in the immediate area of a biowarfare attack.
This is done by
minimizing target exposure to bioagents through
immediate warnings that will facilitate
the most effective evacuation strategy and routing
for those present and in danger from biohazards.
Other Company BW systems provide for the rapid
remediation of contaminated area.
