‘Canary’ Nano Optical Sensor Technology Adds 5 new compounds to its detection capabilities.
Cabin Air Sensor Solutions Ltd have been developing their patented nano sensor technology for the past 5- years to create a ‘Canary’ type sensor for real-time detection of the poisonous organophosphate-compounds such as Tributyl Phosphate, TBP and Tricresyl Phosphate, TCP in aircraft cabins.
The initial handheld unit design and detection capability has been witness tested and verified using Gas chromatography–mass spectrometry (GC MS) by the National Physical Laboratory in Teddington, UK for the detection of low-level TBP in ‘real-time’.
Work has now been successfully completed on sensing the following compounds: Ethanol, Ammonia, Acetone, Toluene, Tricresyl Phosphate & Carbon Monoxide. Work in ongoing to add Triphenyl Phosphate (TPP) to the detection library.
The CASS ‘Canary’ has been proven in testing and verification for accuracy, robustness and flexibility of operation within the aircraft cabin in actual flight and using aircraft cabin test facilities.
