FAR-PASS (Filter Auto Reload – Pneumatic Air Sampling System)

The FAR-PASS provides a solution for airborne biological and chemical sampling and automated sample delivery. Using patented technology, the airborne threat is concentrated onto a small dry spherical filter and pneumatically transported via tubing to a remote collection kiosk (up to several kilometers away) for analysis and identification of the threat or for archiving. The system operated autonomously with auto filter reloading to a sampling schedule, or it can respond immediately to a “trigger” from a near real-time biological or chemical sensor to collect a sample when a potential threat is detected.
