Annotation: REPRESENTATIVE CHEMICAL-RIOT-CONTROL-AGENT DISPERSING DEVICES WERE SELECTED AND TESTED TO OBTAIN RESULTS TO ASSIST IN THE DESIGN AND/OR EXERCISE OF THE EVALUATION MODELS DEVELOPED FOR LESS-LETHAL CHEMICAL WEAPONS.
Abstract: SIX TYPES OF HAND-HELD PRESSURIZED PROJECTORS, TWO TYPES OF 12-GAUGE BARRICADE PENETRATORS, ONE TYPE OF GRENADE AND ONE GAS GUN PROJECTILE WERE TESTED. AS AN ADDITION TO DATA GATHERED FROM LITERATURE SEARCHES, THESE FOUR SERIES OF TESTS PROVIDED INFORMATION TO HELP ESTABLISH A MODEL FOR HAND-HELD PRESSURIZED PROJECTORS (PROJECTOR MODEL), VERIFY THE VALIDITY OF THE MODEL FOR INCLOSURES (VENTILATION MODEL), VERIFY THE PROJECTOR MODEL, AND PROVIDE INPUT FOR THE PROJECTOR AND VENTILATION MODELS. DATA ARE PRESENTED IN NUMEROUS TABLES.
