S3i is a biosecurity firm that specializes in real-time biological aerosol detection and in-place SARS-CoV-2 aerosol transmission simulation. Mature biodefense tools are used to simulate SARS-CoV-2 aerosol transmission in a facility for health security planning.
This testing was performed on aircraft types frequently contracted by USTRANSCOM, the Boeing 767-300 and 777-200. This provided a real-time method for mapping tracer particle concentration for passenger across four cabin zones on the 777-200 and three sections for 767-300 Boeing aircraft.
S3i, Zeteo Tech, NSRI and mobility crews evaluated six airframes in an effort to better understand the airflow of mobility aircraft in case there needs to be a large airlift of COVID-19 positive passengers.
