Sensor developers Jason Gu and Bryan Tomko of SenSevere and SENSIT Technologies along with R. Subramanian of Carnegie Mellon University, received the first place award for the EPA Wildland Fire Sensors Challenge.
EPA and partners presented awards to the winners at the Air Sensors International Conference on Sept. 12, 2018, in Oakland, California.
About the Challenge:
In 2017, EPA and five other federal agencies issued a Wildland Fire Sensors Challenge to improve smoke monitoring and provide data to protect public health. EPA’s federal partners are the U.S. Forest Service, NASA, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and National Park Service (NPS).
The winners of the Challenge used emerging technologies including miniaturized direct-reading sensors, compact microprocessors, and wireless data communications to develop prototypes for measuring smoke from wildland fires.
The air sensor prototypes submitted underwent rigorous two-phase laboratory testing by EPA and the US Forest Service (USFS), a federal partner, for accuracy over a wide range of operation requirements relevant for wildland fire deployment.

SENSIT Technologies, a global leader in gas detection and measurement instruments, recently released the Gasless Leak Trainer.
The Gasless Leak Trainer (GLT) was designed to meet the hands-on training needs for gas emergencies and hazardous leak investigations. The GLT system pairs a Bluetooth-enabled tablet with specially equipped SENSIT and TRAK-IT IIIa Multi-Gas Detectors to simulate real-world scenarios without the need for live gas. The system includes Training Mode, Monitor Mode, and Testing Mode to assist with every aspect of employee development related to hazardous gas investigations.
The GLT allows for total control of the training process. In Training mode, the trainer remotely sends commands to the user’s instrument in real time, allowing the employee to experience realistic scenarios in a gas-free environment. In Monitor mode, the trainer can observe the actions taken by the employee on the instrument during an exercise or live event. In either mode, the trainer observes the employee’s response to gas values, alarms, and other actions. The tablet also incorporates a customizable test to assess employee proficiency.
Gasless Leak Trainer key features:
• Simulates hazardous conditions without live gas
• Improves employee safety and competency
• Provides realistic sensor and instrument response
• Includes customizable employee testing
• Improves emergency response and public safety
Training Applications include:
• Emergency Response
