Paper Abstract

The goal of the test bed project is to test portable, unattended chemical analysis instruments that will help verify the compliance of various international agreements on weapons of mass destruction. We report on the design of the test bed and present response curves for the first sensor deployed at the test bed. The architecture of the data- acquisition and display interface utilizes industry standards (LonWorks and CORBA), state-of-the-art developmental tools, advanced data visualization and display tools, and commercial government off-the-shelf software and hardware in order to have a flexible/modular infrastructure for integrating and testing both sensors and software applications for unattended remote monitoring systems. The HAZMAT Spill Center located at the Nevada Test Site will be described as well as the opportunities it offers for testing unattended chemical sensors.
