Project objectives

Simultaneously detect munitions compounds in seawater in near real-time

  • Achieve detection limit of 1 ng/L (TNT) or <10 ng/L (other target compounds)
  • Achieve near-real-time sensing frequency of 10 minutes or better
  • Develop, build, and demonstrate prototype field-deployable system (TRL 4)
  • Evaluate industry application and commercial viability (TRL 6-7)
  • Stakeholder outreach
  • Train industry end-users on chemical sensing methods
