Abstract : The chemical decontaminant performance evaluation testing source document is the product of project BA06DEC414 for improved test methodology. The primary objective is to improve the rigor of existing test methods for the generation of defensible and comparable decontamination efficacy data for the quantitative determination of post-decontamination contact and vapor hazards and residual agent. Execution of these improved methods will yield higher fidelity data presented in appropriate context. The data generated from these updated methods enhance all components of the decontaminant life cycle, including research and development (R&D), science and technology (S&T), testing and evaluation (T&E), developmental and operational testing (DT/OT) activities, and technology readiness assessments (TRAs) to determine technology readiness level (TRL), technology comparisons, risk assessments, and milestone decisions. The document also includes updates to several of the material compatibility tests that were updated to support program BA06DET504. This report provides a summary of the key experimental testing conducted to develop the methods in the Source Document.
