1. A sensor pack for long term deployment to detect environmental threats, comprising:

  • a plurality of sensor modules to detect at least two types of environmental threats, the plurality of sensor modules in a first mode capable of detecting the presence of environmental threats using minimal electrical power, and in a second mode capable of outputting a level of the environmental threats;

    an interface module, coupled to the plurality of sensor modules and including a linear voltage regulator, the interface module in a first mode capable of providing the minimal electric power, and in a second mode capable of increasing electric power to one of the plurality sensor modules responsive to the sensor module detecting a threat and receiving a threat level; and

    a communication module, coupled to the interface module, the communication module capable of outputting a threat signal responsive to the threat level surpassing a threshold associated with the sensor.
