SensorView, an advanced chemical-biological point detection system infrastructure developed by Ricciardi Technologies Inc. (RTI), utilizes embedded PC/104 hardware components from parvus Corp.

Leveraging parvus' 10Base-T Ethernet Hub and Ethernet Network Interface (NIC) Boards, SensorView is able to remotely command and control a network of nuclear, biological, and chemical detectors, collectors, identifiers and triggers to deliver early-warning automated detection, identification and communication of biological warfare agents (BWAs) and events.

parvus' Environmental Fan Card is also used in SensorView's PC/104 card stack to cool the unit's power supply and CPU module. The Fan Card offers RTI an intelligent PC/104 thermal management solution that uses dual fans and a temperature sensor to circulate air and monitor internal chassis conditions.

The SensorView system is the same control system used in the point detection system slated for mass production by the Joint Program Office for Biological Defense (JPO-DS) of the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD).
