The object of the present research programme is to improve the reliability of carbon monoxide detection through the use of electrochemical cells in the CGA making it insensitive to certain interferents, especially hydrogen. The ease and cost of putting the envisaged solutions into practice were taken into account from the outset of the work. The solutions to the problem of interference due to the presence of hydrogen which are presently the most advanced are those which aim to replace the classical three-electrode cell with a more powerful cell. Based on the combination of this work and the expenditure provisions for each of these solutions, HBLs will be able to apply to the CGA. A manufacturing dossier will be published in 1995. Prototypes for meteorological laboratory tests and on-site validation will be produced before mass production is undertaken.
