    "Establish an Agent-Simulant Technology Relationship (ASTR)"
    Title

    "Establish an Agent-Simulant Technology Relationship (ASTR)"

    This test operations procedure (TOP) provides the standard method for preparing, planning, conducting, and reporting the agent-simulant technology relationship (ASTR) process for use in testing systems and components. An ASTR is a quantified relationship between a measurement collected with agent and the same measurement collected with simulant at the same conditions. This TOP addresses chemical, biological, and radiological (CBR) defense. Within chemical defense, the individual protection (IP), collective protection (CP), decontamination (decon), and contamination avoidance (CA) capability areas are addressed. Example ASTRs are presented from each capability area. The method identifies steps to determine a traceable, quantifiable, and defensible ASTR during testing of components and systems in realistic and operationally relevant scenarios. This procedure tailors ASTRs to the needs of specific tests in any capability area where testing with simulants is required.

    "General Performance Tests of Combat Uniforms and Protective Clothing"
    Title

    "General Performance Tests of Combat Uniforms and Protective Clothing"

    This TOP provides guidance for planning performance and durability tests of combat uniforms, nuclear, biological, chemical (NBC) protective clothing, and other types of clothing worn by the soldier. Items covered include, but are not limited to, uniforms, caps, undergarments, over garments, clothing liners, hoods, masks, gloves, socks and boots.  Tests include laboratory analyses, functional performance over special design or wear test courses described in the appendixes, and field testing. This TOP does not include chemical, ballistic, or other protection testing, but does provide the procedures for “conditioning” the “used” items for these tests as a follow-on to verify performance after SAR durability testing. This TOP does not address natural environments testing of clothing.
