ABSTRACT

LLIS Good Story: Chemical Detection and Response Enhancement for Transit Systems   [open pdf - 68KB]

"Argonne National Laboratory, in conjunction with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the Federal Transit Administration (FTA), the Office for Domestic Preparedness (ODP) and with support from other national labs and private industry partners, has developed and implemented a chemical warning and response enhancement system to assist transit security officials and emergency responders in the event of a chemical release in a subway system. The system is called PROTECT (Program for Response Options and Technology Enhancements for Chemical/Biological Terrorism), and it combines detectors, cameras, and software to alert security officials quickly of a chemical release and provide emergency responders with tools to speed and improve their response."
