Abstract
Atmospheric Observing Systems has substantial experience in the design, testing and manufacturing of glass flask packages for CCGG/CMDL. AOS is proposing to expand its business to manufacture packages for the CAMP/CMDL program as well. For Phase I, AOS will build two prototype flask packages for CAMP that are operationally the same as CCGG¿s Programmable Flask Package. They will have either metal or glass flasks and will tested for CAMP¿s target species (halocarbons). Electronics will be made the same for both the CCGG and CAMP units. CMDL will be asked to use its analysis stations to verify the chemical fidelity of various stages of the two prototypes. For Phase II-III, AOS will manufacture the best package and use it to sample CAMP¿s target species from a wide range of platforms. This new flask package will be integrated into AOS¿s product line and marketed worldwide with its in-situ analyzer systems.
