Real-time sensors for detecting toxic compounds in aircraft cabin air supplies.

VN Aerotoxic Detection Solutions (ADS) has developed the world’s first real-time sensor capable of detecting chemical compounds present in aircraft cabin air supplies. Crucially, the sensor can detect Tricresyl Phosphate (TCP). TCP is a harmful ingredient of the oil used in aircraft engines. In a number of high-profile cases, TCP has contaminated the cabin air supply, resulting in public enquiries and legal actions against airlines.
