This presentation describes a one-year study being led by Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) in close collaboration with NASA, and in partnership with the Cleveland Division of Fire, Cleveland Airport System Aircraft Rescue and Firefighting Department, and the Fire Protection Research Foundation. The purpose of the study is to obtain sufficient evidence to justify implementation of combined NASA-developed miniaturized sensor technologies [multi-parameter aerosol scattering sensor (MPASS) and micro-fabricated gas sensors] into portable, hand-held, and/or wearable equipment to be used in firefighting environments.
