Market Director, Safety & Security
Advancing CBRN Detection Systems in the Field and their Role in CBRN Forensics
Despite the range of detection and identification equipment available to first responders, capability gaps exist for down range CWA/TICs missions and Sensitive Site Exploitation (SSE). Recent development of High-Pressure Mass Spectrometry (HPMS) technology has enabled the release of rugged, handheld devices that help operators address many of these gaps with fast detection of priority CWAs, TICs, and precursors. Samples can now be measured by non-scientists in the field with greater confidence than less specific techniques available previously, while allowing for flexible tactical use analyzing vapors and particulates at trace levels. The presentation will provide an overview of HPMS technology and discuss its implementation in current and future down-range tools with particular attention to field CONOPs and integration with other deployed meters. Several incident scenarios will be reviewed to present hot zone deployment options for HPMS tools including continuous monitoring, wipe samples, and identifying target chemicals in the presence of interferents. The presentation will consider results of third-party performance data and of field evaluations in relation to other available technologies.
Trey Sieger is Market Director at 908 Devices in Boston, Massachusetts. Mr. Sieger’s responsibilities include directing the strategic product development roadmap for the safety and security industry, leveraging new technology breakthroughs to solve problems for civilian and military responders in the field. From 2007-2014, he helped build the market for handheld Raman and FTIR instruments at Ahura Scientific, which was acquired by Thermo Scientific in 2010.
