Decontamination and recovery of a facility or outdoor area after a wide-area biological incident involving a highly persistent agent (eg, Bacillus anthracis spores) is a complex process that requires extensive information and significant resources, which are likely to be limited, particularly if multiple facilities or areas are affected.

The Department of Homeland Security — Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) has partnered with FEMA to investigate and assess new technologies and processes for an updated Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program (HSEEP) Enterprise Platform (EP) for operational use. HSEEP is a capabilities and performance-based exercise program which(More)
In this paper, a new architecture for a motion estimator with full search capability, based on simplified pixel difference classification (PDC) algorithm is presented. Based on the proposed approach for matching criteria, and enhanced by the fixed pixel threshold technique, the hardware requirement for every single processing element was reduced at a ratio(More)
In this study, a new semi-parametric estimation method for censored models, symmetrically censored generalized method of moments (SCGMM) estimator, is proposed. The SCGMM estimator can be applied to censored models when some regressors are correlated with the regression error. Moreover, it does not impose the independence assumption for data, and thus can(More)
