Burn Saver Thermal Sensor

Through a Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) award, the Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate is working with TDA Research, Inc. to develop and produce the “Burn Saver” thermal sensor that can provide real time alerts to firefighters in dangerous thermal conditions. Real time notification allows firefighters to immediately mitigate the risks associated with those conditions by leaving the fire scene. (DHS Video by Science & Technology Directorate/Released)
