Abstract : Provides basic nuclear, biological, and chemical (NBC) contamination survivability information to facilitate test planning, conducting, and reporting, and to achieve standardized testing of mission-essential Army materiel. It describes typical facilities, equipment, and procedures used to contaminate small items of equipment, to decontaminate the items, to sample for contamination remaining on the items, to assess the resulting degradation/damage to the items, and to assess the item/operator/NBC protective gear compatibility. The TOP is to be used primarily for the testing of small items of equipment that are decontaminated by the individual soldier or by two-man or three-man teams operating portable and hand-held decontaminating devices. Such items include personal gear, small arms, radios, optical devices, small electrical generators, and small packages of materiel. The TOP was prepared in response to the requirements prescribed by Army Regulation (AR) 70-75.
