Abstract: In 1994, the Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program (SERDP) funded a Tri-Service effort to accelerate the development and fielding of environmental sensing technologies to extend the capabilities of the Site Characterization and Analysis Penetrometer System (SCAPS). This effort, which was completed in 1998, produced a wide range of SCAPS sensors, samplers, and supporting technologies that allow SCAPS to detect, delineate, and map subsurface contaminants including petroleum, oils, and lubricants (POL), toxic metals, explosives and energetics, volatile organic compounds (VOC), and radioactive wastes. This report describes the various SCAPS sensors developed as part of the SERDP-funded effort including laser induced fluorescense, Raman spectroscopy, laser induced breakdown spectroscopy, X-ray fluorescence, electrochemical sensor, biosensor, and spectral gamma probes. In addition, the development and testing of cone-penetrometer based samplers, including thermal desorption and multiport samplers, are detailed. Results of laboratory evaluation and field validation studies are presented, and technology transfer accomplishments are described. Included in this report is a bibliography of technical papers, reports, presentations, and patents produced during the course of this project.
