Reliable standards are needed to test, maintain, and improve the effectiveness of trace detectors that protect the public, commerce, and infrastructure of the United States. Currently, the NIST Surface & Microanalysis Science Division has an active program in trace detection metrology using state-of-the-art microanalytical instrumentation and ion mobility spectrometers. This program is designed to meet the measurement quality needs of organizations and agencies that use such detectors, which include the Transportation Security Agency, the Office of Law Enforcement Standards, the State Department, the Department of Defense, and the Department of Homeland Security.
