Block MEMS Awarded $3.5M DARPA Contract to Protect Urban Environments

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
Block MEMS LLC, a developer of quantum cascade laser-based IR detection systems, has been awarded a $3.5 million contract from DARPA as part of the SIGMA+ program. Under this contract, Block MEMS will leverage its eye-safe laser capability to generate chemical detection maps via standoff sensing in a complex 3D urban topography. SIGMA+ builds on DARPA's previous SIGMA program, which began in 2014 as an effort to significantly advance scalable detection capabilities to counter the threat of radiological and nuclear weapons of mass destruction. SIGMA developed thousands of...Read full article
