DHS Awards SenseNet Project to ENSCO

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has awarded ENSCO, Inc. a two-year project valued at $4 million called SenseNet, which DHS developed to create a low-cost integrated sensor system for the detection of biological and environmental health hazards in buildings and other high occupancy facilities.

ENSCO, Inc. and its subsidiaries provide engineering, science, and technology solutions for government entities and private institutions in defense, rail transportation, aerospace and aviation, and intelligence sectors worldwide.

During the first phase of the program, ENSCO developed a two-tiered simulator that demonstrated how it would operate in different hypothetical buildings. ENSCO’s solution met the criteria of a high probability of detection, an extremely low false alarm rate, and low cost. Based on the successful simulation, ENSCO was awarded a contract for the next phase.

The company said that during the next phase of the project, ENSCO will develop, integrate and demonstrate atiered aerosol detection system that combines low-cost and rapid dedicated environmental monitoring sensors with newly emerging commercial sensors that are being used by citizens and facility owners for air quality, pollution tracking, and building efficiency purposes.

“We are proud of this contract win,” states Boris Nejikovsky, President of ENSCO, Inc. “This project capitalizes on ENSCO’s strength and unique capabilities in CBRNe risk assessment, modeling and monitoring. We look forward to working with the DHS to create a Biological Hazards Detection System that meets security needs now and in the future.”
