Detectors, Environmental, Biological Agent, Telemetric
Definition : Chemical agent environmental detectors designed for automated detection and/or identification of biological agents (e.g., generic and/or specific types of bacteria, viruses, spores, and/or toxins) using a sensor that is connected via a hardwired, radio, or satellite link to one or more remote stations. They usually warn when predetermined concentrations of biological agents have been reached or exceeded. These detectors may use one or several different technologies, including chemical and/or optical detection. Telemetric biological agent environmental monitors can be placed in hospital wards or at victim collection sites to detect contamination and to prevent personnel from entering a contaminated area.
