The ALS MWO integrates a common suite of commercial- and government-off-the-shelf components onto a user-specific platform. The system will provide field confirmatory analysis to support identification of chemical and biological materials in environmental samples. Information produced by the system will assist decision-makers with managing and/or mitigating the effects of a CBRN attack or disaster. This effort addresses immediate readiness and safety issues resulting from system obsolescence.
BENEFIT TO THE WARFIGTHER
The ALS MWO addresses ALS Increment 1 obsolescence issues and will optimize the Warfighter’s ability to analyze data by providing enhanced human factors and engineering controls; a larger shelter and work space; upgraded software; larger databases to help identify unknowns, and improved process flow integration.
