We are a team of entrepreneurs collaborating with engineers and scientists to bring exciting new applications of a technology to many industry sectors worldwide. The primary benefit of the service is to act as an ‘early warning’ system for harmful pests.
We own the rights to a Polymodal Biological Sensor (PBS) invention that can be used to detect biological targets worldwide. Monitoring deployed sensors will be performed from a central operations center. A global learning system (GLS) component in the operations center will evaluate and validate target data received from deployed sensor networks. When a target pest is identified the GLS will automatically notify appropriate personnel so they can quickly perform 'spot' pest control measures. This environmentally friendly method eliminates 'random' application of pesticides and greatly reduces the need for 'pre-treatment' in a maintenance fashion - just in case the pest comes.
We expect to deploy the first sensors to detect the presence of pests in commercial and/or residential structures; for example: rodents in food storage facilities, mole crickets in turfgrass, mountain pine beetles in the northern forests, and several agricultural pests in many places around the world. The most exciting endeavor for Global PBS is to be able to notify ‘early responders’ in the medical community of an impending zoonosis threat (disease transmitted from animals to humans).
New Sensor types can be developed and deployed to detect virtually any biology.
