A new sensing architecture is being developed for plume-based chemical and biological CB threat detection, mapping, and prediction. This effort seeks to provide a novel, affordable, and effective solution to spatially distributed CB detection by working in four key areas. These four areas include the analysis of performance gains offered by distributed sensing the development of detection algorithms the construction of an inexpensive sensor prototype and experimentation with inexpensive, low-power deployment infrastructures. This multipronged approach to inexpensive spatially distributed sensing has led to the creation of a robust CB sensing architecture that offers many significant advantages over traditional approaches.
