ASSESSMENT

Safe treatment of recovered chemical warfare materiel (RCWM) relies on thorough assessment, packaging and storage before the destruction solution is deployed. RCMD’s proven assessment technologies provide critical information on site during suspect CWM recoveries, determining whether a munition is explosively configured or contains chemical agent.

 

 

DRCT Fact Sheet/Resources/Digital%20Radiography%20and%20Computed%20Tomography%20System%20(DRCT).pdfDigital Radiography and Computed Tomography System (DRCT)DRCT technology is a transportable, non-intrusive assessment system that analyzes and provides on-site information about the contents of unidentified munitions without opening them. This greatly reduces risk to the public, workers and emergency response personnel by rapidly obtaining detailed information and distributing it to the appropriate authorities and responders.DRCT Fact Sheet
