SUPERVISE PREPARATION FOR CHEMICAL
AND BIOLOGICAL RECONNAISSANCE MISSIONS
kits, sampling kits, vehicles, radios, and other supplies. NBC personnel must understand this
equipment and know the checks and services to be performed on each.
To supervise preparations for chemical and biological reconnaissance missions,
you must be able to:
1. Describe chemical agent detection and biological agent sampling equipment.
CHECK FOR CHEMICAL
AND BIOLOGICAL AGENTS
The presence of chemical agents can be determined by use of the M256 Chemical Agent Detector
Kit. Unknown chemical agents and biological agents can be sampled with the M34 CB Agent
To check for chemical and biological agents, you must be able to test for
1. Using the M256 Chemical Agent Detector Kit.
2. Using the ABC-M18A2 Chemical Agent Detector Kit.
SUPERVISE CHEMICAL SURVEY
AND BIOLOGICAL SAMPLING OPERATIONS
NBC reconnaissance units and unit survey parties conduct reconnaissance operations to identify the
type and extent of the hazard. In a chemical survey you will need to know information about the
conduct of the survey, specific data to be collected, areas to be surveyed, and procedures for
marking the area. Biological agent samples may be collected by NBC reconnaissance teams. The
teams need to know indicators of a biological attack, how to screen suspected areas, and biological
