Abstract
The instrument of choice for identifying low-level amounts of CW agents and other volatile, highly toxic substances is gas chromatography - mass spectrometry (GC-MS). This analytical tool has the sensitivity required for performing such low-levelanalyses, and the ability to provide irrefutable confirmation of the identity of a volatile or semi-volatile substance, including CW agents. However, commercially available GC-MS instruments that are rugged enough to withstand the extreme conditions ofoutdoor environments and are able to provide results in a timely manner cannot also provide analytical results of laboratory quality.However, emerging technological improvements in gas chromatography (i.e.
