Abstract : Details are specified as to requirements and conduct of tests governing the measurement and analyses (as pertains to human exposure) of concentrations of common toxic gas/metal compounds produced during equipment/systems operations including: weapons firing from combat vehicles; automotive operations; operation of fueled fired heaters; firing of rockets/missiles using either solid or liquid propellants; operation of fuel burning systems; and activation of fire extinguishing systems. Included are the associated air standards for air quality and exposure as well as requirements and general specifications/criteria governing the measuring instrumentation. Particular attention is devoted to exposure to carbon monoxide (CO) and the details as to the analysis of CO exposure since it is the leading indicator of airborne toxicity. -BKA
