Abstract : As the U.S. Army downsizes and many experienced personnel leave the service, installation Directorates of Public Works (DPWs) must fulfill their mission with lower operating budgets and fewer technical personnel. A key DPW function significantly affected by this trend is the quality assurance (QA) program. Previous work by the U.S. Army Construction Engineering Research Laboratories (USACERL) identified a number of industrial instrumentation systems that could help verify field judgments made by QA inspectors. The equipment was field tested by DPW personnel, monitored and evaluated by USACERL, then transferred to U.S. Army Center for Public Works (USACPW) to establish an equipment bank of sensor/measurement instrumentation. The equipment bank allows installation DPWs to use and evaluate various systems without the expense of buying them. This report comprises a catalog of the sensor/measurement systems available in the USACPW equipment bank, plus some scheduled for acquisition. Listings are organized according to QA application. Each listing includes a product description, price range, indication of technical skill required for using the system and interpreting its output, and description of operating principle. A list of vendors is included in an appendix. (RWJ)
