Abstract
CHEMICAL WARFARE AGENTS POSE A THREAT TO OUR FORCES WHICH REQUIRES A COUNTERMEASURE WHICH DOES NOT RESTRICT THE MOBILITY OR OPERATING EFFECTIVENESS OF THE SOLDIERS AND WHICH CAN BE READILY DEPLOYED. THE OBJECTIVES OF THE PROGRAM ARE THE DEVELOPMENT OF SPECIALTY FORMULATIONS WHICH WILL PROTECT AND\ OR TREAT PERSONNEL EXPOSED TO CW AGENTS. FORMULATIONS WILL BE CONCEPTUALIZED WHICH WILL AFFORD THE DESIRED PROTCTION AND\OR TREATMENT AND ANALYTIC MODEL WILL BE DEVELOPED TO ENABLE THE COMPUTER SIMULATION OF THE PERFORMANCE OF THESE FORMULATIONS. THEY WILL BE CAPABLE OF BEING APPLIED DIRECTLY TO THE SOLDIER'S SKIN OR TO HIS CLOTHING. IT APPEARS FEASIBILE TO GENERATE FORMULATIONS WHICH WILL BE EFFECTIVE, OF LOW TOXICITY, EASILY SYNTHESIZED, READILY APPLIED, WITH A LONG SELF LIFE AND CAPABLE OF PRODUCTION IN LARGE QUANTITY ON SHORT NOTICE. EXPERIMENTAL WORK WILL BE CARRIED OUT TO DEMOSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF THE CONCEPT AND TO CHECK THE ACCURACY OF THE ANALYTIC MODEL. THE POTENTIAL FOR THE USE OF THESE FORMULATIONS WITHIN THE U.S. ARMY WILL BE EVALUATED.
