Abstract : This Scientific and Technological Applications Forecast (STAF) presents a rigorous discussion of Chemical Detection of Personnel by Gaseous and Particulate Matter. Various methods of detecting enemy forces in jungle terrain, hidden in ambush, or otherwise concealed are a matter of great concern to the Department of the Army. This STAF report discusses the present State-of-the-Art of the three phases of chemical detection: (1) Materials Generation - the gaseous and particulate matter generated by both man and equipment; (2) Atmospheric Diffusion - the mechanisms by which these gaseous and particulate materials are dispersed in the surrounding environment; and (3) Instrumentation - types and techniques used to detect these materials.
