DHS S&T has partnered with the Metropolitan Transportation Authority in New York City to study how simulated coronavirus aerosols travel through buses and train cars to inform disinfection and other virus mitigation methods.
Crucially important work is accomplished through deploying S&T’s advanced lab-based technical expertise and capabilities in research, development, test and evaluation.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) plans to conduct a scientific study on aerosol behavior in New York City buses and subway trains. A special focus of the study will be tests of various methods to mitigate the potential spread of aerosols in buses and subway trains.
The Vehicle Inspection for Early Warning (VIEW) system is designed to be low-cost, automated, fast ,and resilient with both permanent and mobile configurations.
DHS S&T, in partnership with the New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) and Massachusetts Institute of Technology Lincoln Laboratory, will conduct tests in a real-world environment to determine the most effective measures to reduce the spread of viruses on public transit.
