I know from my work for a DoD contractor that there currently is no acceptable biohazard sensor, at least for the particular small container that I'm familiar with. Am I correct in thinking that the Ibis work might fill this bill? One misgiving I have though is that Ibis is just a small part of Isis.

Although it's fun to share enthusiasm for stock, TIGER probably won't be deployed for any water systems. The govt has concluded that it's not a viable target for terrorists. They would need to back up multiple dump trucks of any type of poison to actually cause any harm to people and that they say isn't feesable.
You have the right idea. The Tiger system could be employed in great numbers just to continuously monitor water quality and to protect against Bioterroists affecting our water supply. Why give the enemy a 24 to 72 hour head start and not know what the organism that is causing all the havoc. And also to protect against a possibly previously unseen organism with the idea that you can at least track down the lineage from where it came makes this an invaluable tool. There is nothing like it. t
