This report provides specific details for the verification and validation VV of a low-volatility agent permeation LVAP test methodology. Upon acceptance of this VV report, this methodology will be transitioned to the Test and Evaluation TE community for use in current and future acquisition programs. LVAP test methods have been shown to be more accurate for measuring the permeation of low-volatility contaminants such as O-ethyl S-2-ethyl methylphosphonothioate VX. The traditional methods detailed in various standards using a liquid challenge and a vapor sample collection are problematic when applied to low-volatility compounds. The method results detailed in this report were derived from multiple years of research at the U.S. Army Edgewood Chemical Biological Center ECBC Aberdeen Proving Ground, MD with support from the Joint Science and Technology Office JSTO Ft. Belvoir, VA the U.S. Army Natick Soldier Research, Development, and Engineering Center NSRDEC Natick, MA and the Joint Program Executive Office for Chemical and Biological Defense JPEO-CBD Aberdeen Proving Ground, MD.
