Our sensor modules and subsystems address a broad range of applications, many of which require sensor systems that are best integrated and deployed by an established system integrator. As such, NevadaNano is eager to explore partner relationships with proven system integrators where our sensing subsystems will add value and promote mutual success. Significant opportunities exist for a broad range of government and commercial applications as identified in the Solutions section of this Website. A system integrator having established expertise and marketing channels in these spaces will benefit significantly from a partner relationship with NevadaNano.
A short term opportunity for a NevadaNano partner involves utilizing our sensor modules for the shipping container threat detection system described in the TRUST Program recently announced by the Department of Homeland Security. Providing security for the US economy by protecting US imports is a $10B+ market opportunity for technology hardware, worldwide deployment and support, and IT infrastructure support. This program will implement threat detection for all 10 million containers traveling to the U.S. each year and will require approximately 2.2 million sensor systems to be deployed, monitored and maintained worldwide. The security need for shipping containers has been documented by the 9/11 Commission and solutions have been mandated by Congress in the SAFEPORT Act. Experts expect an attack to occur by the 2012 timeframe and Congress has mandated that containers be inspected by 2012.
NevadaNano has been developing Security Systems for DARPA and the DOD since 2004. We have development well underway on a system that comprehensively addresses the requirements of the TRUST program, and expect that system to be available for field trials in advance of any competition. Also, the sensor modules contained in this system are application-independent, and will be available for evaluation for other applications as part of a partner relationship.
Thus, NevadaNano has much to contribute to a relationship with an established system integrator partner. For more information and to discuss the opportunities, please contact us.
