THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PROPOSED WORK ISTO DEVELOP A MICROPROCESSOR BASED CHEMICAL IDENTIFICATION SYSTEM THAT WILL ENABLE EMERGENCY PERSONNEL TO IDENTIFY THE CHEMICAL REMOTELY FROM OVER 1000 FEET. THE EFFORT PROPOSED INCLUDES DESIGNING APPROPRIATE ELECTRONIC SYSTEM COMPONENTS AND CIRCUITS, AND TESTING THE FEASIBILITY OF THE CONCEPT ON A BREADBOARD MODEL. THE BREADBOARD MODEL WILL BE TESTED FOR TESTED FOR THE WORKABILITY OF THE CONCEPT. THE RESULT OF THIS PHASE OF WORK WILL RESULT IN THE DEMONSTRATION OF THE TECHNICAL FEASIBILITY OF THE CONCEPT OF REMOTE CHEMICAL IDENTIFICATION (USING MICROPROCESSOR TECHNOLOGY) AND A HIGHLIGHTING OF THE TECHNICAL PROGLEMS TS THAT NEED TO BE OVERCOME FOR USE OF THE SYSTEM ON TANK CARS AND TANK TRUCKS.
