U.S. Invests in Water Born Pathogen Detection with ADT

Advanced Diamond Technologies, Inc. (ADT) was awarded a contract by the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) to develop real-time sensors for water born contaminants. Water Technology Online discusses the award here. The full press release for the award is available as well. The contract is worth almost $5 million and will utilize ADT’s nanostructured diamond material to build the sensors. The University of Wisconsin-Madison (UW) and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) are collaborating with the company on the program. The goal is to make small sensors that can be used by field personnel to quickly identify and classify the threat in the water.
