Abstract:

The United States has paid little attention to nuclear warfare, biological warfare, and chemical warfare in the last decade. Meanwhile, the Soviet Union initiated an expansion of its chemical warfare program which has continued to grow at a greater rate than any aspect of their military force. Since conducting training in one or any combination of these three special environments is not possible, United States preparedness to fight on a chemically, biologically, or nuclear contaminated battlefield requires the development of special training equipment, devices, and procedures which simulate these conditions as realistically as possible. To accomplish its mission, the US Army must train in peacetime as it will fight in war. This to train in an NBC environment.
