ASTM International Committee on Homeland Security Applications; Operational Equipment; Robots (E54.08.01)

The goal of the upcoming meeting of the ASTM International standards committee on Homeland Security Applications; Operational Equipment; Robots (E54.08.01) is to provide an update on each working group's efforts with an emphasis on getting the bulk of the existing test methods to ballot. Draft standard texts and apparatus design specifications will be reviewed, along with results and feedback captured at the March 2010 Response Robot Evaluation Exercise at Disaster City, TX.  Due to the short timeframe since the exercise, we expect only a small subset of our emergency responder advisory panel will be able to attend to provide guidance on our discussions, but the technical folks will press on with detailed discussions. So the focus of the meeting will be on addressing comments to the draft standard texts for each working group and discussing the balloting status.
