IARPA Launches "MAEGLIN" Program To Develop Low-Power, Autonomous Chemical Identification Systems

April 26, 2017

Washington – The Intelligence Advance Research Projects Activity, within the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, announced the launch of the Molecular Analyzer for Efficient Gas-phase Low-power Interrogation—“MAEGLIN”—program, a multi-year research effort to ultimately develop a compact system capable of unattended environmental sampling and chemical identification with minimal (preferably no) consumables. If successful, the technology developed under the program would enable multi-year chemical monitoring of hard-to-access sites without the need of maintenance, reagent replenishing, or other activities that would require regular human intervention.
