CBRN-E Decontamination Vehicle
The purpose of the CBRN-E Decontamination Vehicle is the on-site decontamination of intervening personnel and their equipment after the execution of CBRN-E related tasks.
The functional areas of the vehicle:
• machinery and loading compartment
• pre-decontamination area
• personnel decontamination area
• post-treatment area
The pre-decontamination area is equipped with a mobile decontamination unit, used for the predecontamination of persons wearing protective gear. Following pre-decontamination, the protective gear and clothing are removed. The personnel decontamination area permits the execution of decontamination in two phases: first with a mixture of warm water and a personal decontamination agent, followed by rinsing with warm water. There is one fixed and one hand-held decontamination (shower) head for each phase. The post-treatment area serves for drying and for putting on the post-personnel-decontamination clothing kit.
