CEA Tech can deliver targeted expertise to help keep people and property safe. CEA Tech’s institutes are developing innovative molecule-detection technologies that can help prevent the trafficking of illegal substances, for example. When combined with CEA Tech’s energy harvesting technologies and know-how in miniature antennas, these solutions could help detect large-scale pollution and monitor sensitive infrastructures.
CEA Tech’s security research also addresses ways to keep people safe in hazardous situations. Solutions include virtual and augmented reality, which, when combined with robotics, can enable a completely new approach to industrial maintenance and make learning dangerous tasks safer.
Primosens is a miniaturized and portable gas chromatography system developed under a French government CBRN-E counterterrorism program. It can detect the presence of a given gas in a mixture right at the testing site. The advance also offers potential for use in fields other than counterterrorism.
The MIRPHAB pilot line is a one-stop-shop for mid-infrared detection technologies. It is available to companies that would like to integrate state-of-the-art chemical sensors into their products.
Reliable and reproducible nanomaterials characterization protocols have been developed at Liten and are now available to businesses for their nanomaterials testing campaigns.
The performance of systems used to identify volatile compounds has been enhanced substantially thanks to research conducted under the Essaim project. Improvements were made to both the sensors and the data acquisition and processing methods.
Leti, a CEA Tech institute, is coordinating the development of ISO standards for microfluidics. The goal is to speed up research and development in a field where design rules are often proprietary and empirical.
