EVADE 2.2 has been updated with expanded video and data features to make it a more generalized and powerful tool.
1/1/2012 - Peer reviewed journal articlesNIOSH researchers completed field trials during coal mine rescue contests using simulated gas detectors in place of placards, and demonstrated that the newly developed GMS device may be used with no adverse impact on team contest performance.
12/1/2008 - Peer reviewed journal articlesThis paper discusses methods of preventing CO migration, lessening migrated CO, and detecting CO in underground enclosed spaces and may help reduce exposure of area residents to CO and help prevent unnecessary regulations and blasting limitations.
9/1/2006 - Reports of InvestigationsThis report includes the theory of operation, description, and the performance of the Personal Dust Monitor (PDM) compared to gravimetric-based reference dust sampling methods and laboratory verification of the instruments accuracy.
11/1/2000 - Peer reviewed journal articlesThe Roof Monitoring Safety System (RMSS) is described, compared to other roof-monitoring technology, and described in context with proactive ground control plans for stone mines.
8/1/1998 - Technology NewsThe Roof Monitoring Safety System (RMSS) provides a safer, simple, and inexpensive means for measuring roof movement; its use in underground stone mines is described.
1/1/1995 - Reports of InvestigationsMany mines rely on toxic gas sensors to help maintain a safe and healthy work environment. This report describes a prototype monitoring system developed by the USBM that uses light to power and communicate with remote toxic gas sensors.
1/1/1992 - Reports of InvestigationsReports on the U.S. Bureau of Mines development and testing of an instrinsically safe methane monitor based on differential absorption of infrared light.
Evaluation of Methods to Inform Development of a Near Real-time Monitor for Measuring and Reducing RCS Exposures in Non-coal Mines9/18/2020 - Research projectsA project to develop novel and improved monitoring solutions for respirable crystalline silica that can be commercialized and subsequently provided to mine operators for the assessment of hazardous conditions in the field.
