Chemical and 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.
