Smart nanomaterials and a soldier alarm badge to detect toxic gases by mobile devices.

Abstract The project is dedicated to creation of the new smart wearable soldier alarm badge to detect toxic gases. The project develops new functionalized smart nanomaterials based on conducting nanocomposites and liquid crystals to detect nerve agent mimics. They will be integrated as array on the new sensor card installed in the developed smart badge. Electronics and recognition algorithms will be developed for signal treatment and data processing. In case of the chemical attack (ppb concentration) the badge will give fast sound and digital alarm, transmit it via wireless connection to soldiers/first responders and remote command post for precise analysis
