Abstract : The objective of the analysis was to provide a comprehensive evaluation of wartime consumption rates for chemical warfare (CW) defensive material for use in developing War Reserve requirements and assessing the current US stockpile. The study presents, in Volume I, a comprehensive discussion of the efforts undertaken to compute the wartime consumption rates for chemical warfare defensive equipment (CDE) using IDA TACWAR model. Volume II, Documentation, comprises Appendices A, B and C. Appendix A details how division, corps and theater army support forces were aggregated to provide functional support units as input to the TACWAR model. Appendix B contains a discussion of the decision rules that were developed by the U.S. Army Chemical School for use in the analysis. Appendix C presents the details of the post- processor which was developed to manipulate output data from the TACWAR model and generates consumption rates for each CDE item. Appendix D, which is presented as Volume III, contains the actual consumption rates for the CDE items which form the detailed output of this study.
