The Joint Biological Point Detection System (JBPDS) is a field deployment unit for military encampments overseas. It provides automatic detection and identification of biological warfare (BW) agents in air at very low levels, triggers local and remote warning systems, and communicates threat information over standard communication systems. Up to 10 different types of threats can be monitored simultaneously. While at General Dynamics, I served as the lead mechanical designer for the card elevation platform and the injection system where the specific type of threat is identified. I answered directly to the project manager.
The Joint Service Lightweight Standoff Chemical Agent Detector (JSLSCAD) is a smaller and more maneuverable device than the JPBDS, and focuses specifically on tactical chemical weapons detection. While at General Dynamics, I served as a supporting mechanical designer for the device framework. I answered to the lead mechanical designer.
