SAVER Project: Portable Infrared Spectroscopy Chemical Detectors

Portable Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy chemical detectors are widely used by responders to identify unknown or suspect materials. Applications include chemical spills, suspicious package screening, clandestine labs, illegal dumping sites, arson investigations, and identification of unlabeled containers or drums. These devices may be used in combination with other technologies to improve confidence in detection and/or identification.

Find this project in the FEMA Authorized Equipment List and InterAgency Board Interactive Standardized Equipment List.
