Abstract

IT IS PROPOSED TO DEVELOP AN ALL SOLID STATE MULTICHEMICAL SENSOR SYSTEM. THE SYSTEM WILL BE PORTABLE, CAPABLE OF DETECTING A MULTIPLE NUMBER OF GASES AND IT WILL BE MICROPROCESSOR CONTROLLED. THE PROPOSED SYSTEM WILL UTILIZE INFRARED SPECTROSCOPY AND AN INNOVATIVE SOLID STATE IR SOURCE DEVELOPED BY HIGH TECHNOLOGY SENSORS. THIS SOURCE WILL BE FURTHER CHARACTERIZED AND DEVELOPED FOR INCORPORATION WITHIN A PROTOTYPE GAS SENSING SYSTEM SUITABLE FOR OPERATION WITHIN A HELICOPTER ENVIRONMENT.
