Potential government customers include researchers at the NOAA, USDA, EPA, and DOE. The product will continuously monitor organic aerosols in the environment and automatically log data. This system has broad relevance for regulatory compliance and environmental research. By developing diverse sensor arrays these systems could be used for monitoring of industrial processes for both quality and process control. The resulting benefits are significant when considering the possible use of these "electronic noses" in any number of industries, from food processing, petrochemicals, specialty chemicals, and waste handling and disposal. Consumer and food industries require methods to improve their batch-to-batch processes, reduce contaminants, and reduce off odors that come from packaging. Chemical industries need detectors for leaks of toxic or explosive vapors as well as contamination detection in process streams. Civilian applications include monitoring drinking water for MTBE, pesticides, or fuels, while military applications include detecting toxic or explosive agents in fuels.
