The Recovered Chemical Materiel Directorate uses the Mobile Munitions Assessment System (MMAS) to provide analysis of recovered items with unknown fills. MMAS uses non-intrusive assessment equipment to rapidly provide detailed information on recovered items and distribute that information to appropriate authorities, reducing risk to the public, military and emergency personnel.
