Abstract:

Research is concerned with the feasibility of installing collective protection air filtration equipment on semitrailer vans, trucks, and air transportable shelters that contain the various subsystems of the ANMSG-4 Antiaircraft Defense System. The collective protection equipment will include a chemical, bacteriological, and radiological CBR filter for filtering irritating, noxious, and toxic gases and aerosols from the air a pressure- control device to maintain minimum pressure of the air conditioning system and an air lock that permits personnel to make safe entry and exit from the various vehicles and shelters. Mockups of proposed CBR filters and a mockup of a protective entrance will be fabricated following completion of the initial phase of the feasibility study.
