- The Aegis system at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) is being developed to provide a real-time emergency response management capability for a diverse range of environmental monitoring applications. The Aegis system is designed to integrate a variety of environmental, emergency, and process monitoring sensor systems using a flexible, modular architecture that can be readily configured for any number of industrial, commercial, or government sites. Several unique LLNL technologies are being integrated via this effort that will provide tracking of environmental contaminants, real-time identification of potentially unacceptable conditions, and facilitation of emergency or measured response management operations. Potential areas of application include: monitoring-surface/ground water, air, radiation; waste effluent & storm/drain line; water quality (water storage, treatment, and distribution); fixed processes, safety systems; critical facilities; hazardous spill management; rapid environmental monitoring deployment; watershed protection; ecosystem management and restoration; enforcement and compliance.
