This study was requested to advise the CMA about the status of analytical instrumentation technology and systems suitable for monitoring airborne chemical warfare agents at chemical weapons disposal and storage facilities. The report presents an assessment of current monitoring systems used for airborne agent detection at CMA facilities and of the applicability and availability of innovative new technologies. It also provides a review of how new regulatory requirements would affect the CMA's current agent monitoring procedures, and whether new measurement technologies are available and could be effectively incorporated into the CMA's overall chemical agent monitoring strategies.Some of the issues raised in this section of Chapter 4 regarding alarm levels for NRT monitoring systems also apply to reportable limits for manual monitors such as DAAMS.19 The ... greater than or equal to 95 percent (U.S. Army, 2004a).
