ACMIT at the European Forum Alpbach 2016

Following an invitation of the Austrian Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology (bmvit), ACMIT had the opportunity to present a project conducted within the Austrian Security Research Programme KIRAS at the European Forum Alpbach 2016.

microSNIFF – Mobile Detection of critical substances for First Responders

The project microSNIFF has been funded by the Austrian security research programme KIRAS of the Federal Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology (bmvit).

Project idea was the development of a detection system for volatile critical substances as personnel protection equipment for first responders (e.g. firefighters, rescue teams, etc.).

Project goals

  • warning of potential hazards
  • first indication about the hazardous situation
  • cost-efficient – affordable for various protection and security forces (dual-use)
  • simple handling – should also increase the protection for untrained personnel

The developed demonstrator was presented at the bmvit-booth of the Technology Symposium of the European Forum Alpbach on the 25th of August 2016.
