3/1/2016 - Peer reviewed journal articlesThis article by NIOSH describes a series of full-scale experiments that evaluated an atmospheric monitoring system for fire detection in other areas of a coal mine.
3/31/2015 - Contracts and cooperative agreementsA contract to develop a monitor that can measure diesel particulate matter (DPM) in real time for at least a month and provide information on the mine-wide DPM concentrations to a central control station located on the surface.
Evaluation of a Wearable Monitor for Measuring Real-time Diesel Particulate Matter Concentrations in Several Underground Mines12/1/2014 - Peer reviewed journal articlesAn article presenting a performance evaluation of a wearable, real-time DPM monitor, the Airtec, in several underground metal/nonmetal mines by comparing it to the standard method for determining DPM exposures (NIOSH method 5040).
Here Comes The Helmet-CAM: A Recent Advance In Technology Can Improve How Mine Operators Investigate and Assess Respirable Dust.10/1/2014 - Non-peer reviewed journal articlesAn article describing the latest advancements in technology to improve how mine operators can investigate and assess the respirable dust exposure of their workers.
7/18/2014 - Contracts and cooperative agreementsA contract to leverage the on-going development of the new generation Tandem Track (TT) snake robot, by modifying this new system in a way that makes it suitable for operations in underground mines.
