Desired Platform Feature Necessary for Ubiquitous Biosensing
Standardized Universal interface capable of operation across platforms
Open and Programmable Necessary for graphical user interface and software application to be rapidly modifiable
SWAP-C For disruptive technologies, platforms must meet economic demands, including size, weight, power, and cost
Other Standard Capabilities to Leverage Integrated archival data storage (GPS, time, date, readout, images, etc.) available for after-action processing
Networked Data transmitted and recorded for further analysis and processing
Easy to Use Operation and readout on platform must be simple for broad acceptance
Multiplexed Analysis Extendable to include biothreat sensing, POC diagnostics, small molecule (cocaine, TNT, etc.), and nuclear materials
