The ability for a warfighter to quickly and effectively decontaminate chemical and biological agents on sensitive equipment in the field can significantly improve the readiness and effectiveness of that warfighter. We propose to improve current decontamination technology based on hot air decontamination techniques, already at TRL 4, to enable the rapid and complete removal of threats from sensitive equipment such as radios and optics without any damage to the equipment. We will demonstrate the decontamination of CWAs with a brassboard prototype with processes that will ensure rapid re-issuing of equipment, in a form factor that is amenable to advancement into a self-contained and rugged decontamination unit for the field decontamination of sensitive equipment.
