Abstract:

The concept of an orphaned material is best described in radioactive sources, where orphaned sources are described as materials not under regulatory control. In reviewing policy across the DoD and Joint and Service doctrine, there is generally very good policy and doctrine for the management of found chemical warfare material, incomplete policy and doctrine for abandoned radioactive materials, and limited policy and doctrine for biological materials. CBRN materials discovered in conjunction with a military operation would likely be managed under Weapons of Mass Destruction WMD Elimination doctrine radioactive sources not associated with a suspected WMD site, such as an abandoned industrial source, are not well addressed.
