Abstract : The Second Annual Site Characterization and Analysis Penetrometer System (SCAPS) Sensor Development Workshop was held at the U.S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station, Vicksburg, MS, during August 29 and, 30, 1996. In attendance were researchers, managers, and SCAPS users representing the Army, Navy, Air Force, the Department of Defense, the Department of Energy, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the National Institute of Standards and Technology. Workshop participants presented briefings on the status of their SCAPS-related sensor research, development, and demonstration efforts. Managers and users of SCAPS technologies participated in the briefings and discussions and described the needs and concerns from the users perspective. The Peer Review Panel evaluated the progress of the Tri-Service SCAPS sensor development project and presented recommendations for future work.
