Abstract
THIS PROPOSAL COVERS PHASE I OF A RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT PROJECT TO DEVELOP A LOW COST DISPOSABLE PASSIVE DOSIMETER FOR MONITORING PERSONNEL EXPOSURE TO TOXIC HYDRAZINE COMPOUNDS. THE SYSTEM WILL BE CAPABLE OF MEASURING IN THE WORKPLACE ATMOSPHERE AT LOW PPM LEVELS AND PROVIDING VISUAL ALARM WARNING TO THE WEARER. PHASE I CONSISTS OF THE NECESSARY BASIC RESEARCH INTO COLORIMETRIC CHEMICAL REACTION SYSTEMS TO PERMIT SELECTION OF THE OPTIMUM CANDIDATE. IN ADDITION FILTER MATERIALS WILLBE TESTED TO DETERMINE SUITABLE DIFFUSION BARRIER MATERIALS.A COMPLETE BADGE CONCEPT WILL BE PROPOSED FOR FURTHER DEVELOPMENT UNDER PHASE II.
