Abstract
While individual instances of Chemical/Biological (CB) detection sensor technology development have progressed steadily, deficiencies remain. An integrated multi-sensor network for CB detection is a promising concept for improving performance. New development is needed to address the complex challenge of how to optimally deploy and evaluate CB sensor networks to ensure maximum utility against an ensemble of possible release scenarios. This problem is complicated by elements including: a broad range of disparate CB sensor technologies, a lack of standard sensor performance metrics, quantification of multi-sensor performance, complex terrain, and undetermined release time and/or location. This proposal describes an innovative concept to address the general challenge of CB deployment and evaluation through an integrated use of historical weather data, CB sensor performance characteristics representation, physical plume modeling, and an extendable sensor array allocation and evaluation algorithm.
