Abstract
In the fall of 1990 the Defence Research Establishment Suffield (DRES) became involved in a project whose aim was to provide the Canadian Forces assigned to Operation Friction (Desert Storm) with an automated capability to detect potential biological agents. This project resulted in the design and construction of five Mobile Atmospheric Sampling Units (MASU), four of which were shipped to the Middle East. The MASUs were designed so that they could be deployed in groups to provide sampling over a wide area. When used in this mode an MASU would become a master station and would control and receive data from the remote MASUs in the group via a radio modem system. The radio modem system allowed the MASU units to be deployed based on operational requirements rather than on functional requirements, such as the routing of communication cables between the units. This report describes the MASU radio modem installation and the operational configuration of the modems.
