Abstract:

This report was produced to study the history of past chemical weapons movement operations from 1946 to 1986. The history was then to be used as a source of lessons learned for planning any transportation which might be required to implement the Chemical Stockpile Disposal Program. The report candidly discusses problems encountered on past chemical weapons movement operations and suggests areas in which the movement of chemical weapons can be improved based on past experience. The report summarizes all movement operations from 1946 to 1986, while acknowledging that this record is incomplete for some years because not all movement records were preserved. Keywords Chemical weapons, Chemical munitions, Transportation, Hazardous chemicals, GB, VX, HD, Movement, History.
