Chemical & Biological Analysis
One of Polestar’s key focus areas has been the identification and analysis of chemical and biological warfare agents. The Company has supported the Naval Surface Warfare Center-Dahlgren in its program to provide protection from chemical and biological contaminants hidden in a variety of packages. We have also developed a portable soil analyzer to identify contaminants in the soil for the U.S. Department of Energy. Other projects include research on a non-invasive, deep-tissue pH monitor, and a hematocrit monitor for the 21st century soldier.
