ABSTRACT

Mobile Rest and Relief Facilities for Use in a Chemical Warfare Environment   [open pdf - 679KB]

"This technical paper outlines factors which need to be considered in the design, development, and operational us e of Mobile Rest and Relief Facilities (MRRF). These facilities are intended primarily to provide support for military personnel operating in chemical warfare threat areas away from the support of fixed-base military installations. Besides providing a Toxic-Free Area (TFA), the MRRF must also provide the means for personnel to maintain operational effectiveness: food, water, replacement NBC clothing, washing and toilet facilities, lighting, communications equipment and air conditioning. All of these support requirements need to be taken into account in the early stages of the MRRF concept definition and design. Failure to include these requirements in the development of an MRRF will limit its chemical warfare application."
