Abstract : This Test Operations Procedure (TOP) provides basic information to facilitate planning, conducting, and reporting of large item interiors testing such as tactical vehicles, fixed and rotor wing tactical aircraft, vans, shelters, building interiors, shipboard interiors, and cargo aircraft interiors. This TOP provides standard methods for chemical, biological, and radiological contamination survivability (CBRCS) testing of interior surfaces of military materiel. It is designed to provide results to determine if large items of mission-essential (ME) equipment have met applicable CBRCS requirements. This TOP describes typical facilities, equipment, and procedures used to contaminate and decontaminate equipment, sample for contamination density, sample for residual contamination, determine degradation of ME functions resulting from the contamination/decontamination (C/D) procedures, and analyze crew/system under test (SUT) compatibility.
