Abstract:

This TOP provides basic information to facilitate test planning, conducting, and reporting, and to achieve standardized chemical, biological, and radiological CBR contamination survivability testing of small items of mission-essential ME Army materiel. Small items, for example, include personal gear, small arms, radios, optical devices, small electrical generators, and small packages of materiel. This TOP describes typical facilities, equipment, and procedures used to contaminate small items of equipment, sample for contamination density, decontaminate, sample for residual contamination, determine ME function degradation resulting from contaminationdecontamination procedures, and to assess the item operatorCBR protective gear compatibility. This TOP is to be used primarily for the testing of small items of equipment that are decontaminated by the individual Warfighter or by two-person or three-person teams operating portable and handheld decontaminating devices.
