Abstract
Project goal is to develop and demonstrate a chemical/explosive sensor system to provide enhanced detection and classification in missions for which acoustic or optical imaging alone are not effective. The chemical sensor package developed and delivered during this SBIR effort will be lightweight, low power, and modular for efficient integration into a DHINS, HULS and/or REMUS platform. The package will be designed to correctly confirm acoustic or optical mine classifications and supplement acoustic or optical imagery in situations where the acoustic and optical sensors are not effective
