Half Note

Fact Sheet
10/9/2002

The purpose of the Half Note test was to determine biological decay rates of vegetative nonpathogens in a marine environment and to compare the field decay rates with chamber decay rates when conducted under similar conditions.

West Side, Phase II

Fact Sheet
10/9/2002

The purpose of West Side, Phase II was to evaluate the area coverage capabilities of the A/B 45-Y-4/F-105 powdered agent dissemination system as used operationally over a northern open plains region during cold weather.

Devil Hole, Phase 2

Fact Sheet
10/9/2002

Devil Hole, Phase II was conducted in temperate aspen and spruce forested terrain to provide weapons effects information for artillery delivered VX nerve agent-filled shells. The munitions used were M121A1 (155m) and M426 (8-inch) artillery shells filled with VX nerve agent.

Deseret Test Center Test 69-14

Fact Sheet
10/9/2002

Elk Hunt, Phase II

Fact Sheet
10/9/2002

The Elk Hunt, Phase II tests were designed to determine the amount of VX nerve agent picked up on the clothing of personnel traversing breached paths through contaminated areas and M23 minefields; the amount of VX nerve agent deposited on the surface of vehicles traversing VX-contaminated areas or under which an M23 mine had been detonated; the amount of VX nerve agent deposited on the clothing of personnel actively or passively contacting contaminated vehicles; vehicle decontamination by wet steam, high-pressure cold water hosing, and wallow pit; and, the amount of VX vapor rising from VX-contaminated areas.

Green Mist
