Abstract : The current state of the art of carbon dioxide sensing technology was examined in this task. It was found that no current system can meet the desired requirements. However, several approaches were identified which show promise. The overall summary of approach used to identify the promising sensor concepts is provided in this section along with the basic conclusions that were reached regarding available sensor techniques. Overall recommendations are also summarized below to provide NCSC guidance regarding their consideration of future efforts. (Author)
