Abstract:

This report describes the development of a contamination droplet-distribution model generated from the output of the chemical and biological agent Vapor, Liquid, and Solid Tracking VLSTRACK computer model. VLSTRACK provides the approximate downwind hazard predictions, droplet distributions, and gross contamination levels for chemical agents and munitions of military interest. During this study, we also modeled generic standoff-detection systems using a point-scanning and imaging mode. We validated the models using laboratory measurements and a design of experiments approach.
