TTA-1 - Chemical Attribution Signatures

In FY 2016, the DHS Chemical Forensics Program is seeking to identify new research projects/studies that determine if high-priority CTAs or precursors produced by various synthesis methods or procured from various commercial sources contain/retain CAS. For example associating various samples with each other and/or distinguishing how, where and/or by whom the recovered CTA or precursor samples were produced and subsequently handled. High-priority CTAs include, but are not limited to, the following: Blood Agents, Blister Agents/Vesicants,Nerve Agents, Lung/Choking/Pulmonary Agents, Highly Toxic Pesticides, Rodenticides and Fumigant Chemicals,Toxic Industrial Chemicals (TICs),Toxic Industrial Materials (TIMs), Other Chemical Toxins, Pharmaceuticals and Toxicants, Nerve Agents. Lung/Choking/Pulmonary Agents Highly Toxic Pesticides, Rodenticides and Fumigant Chemicals Toxic Industrial Chemicals (TICs) Toxic Industrial Materials (TIMs) Other Chemical Toxins, Pharmaceuticals and Toxicants
