Abstract
Canada contributed a team of six personnel to the United Nations Special Commission 29 for the destruction of 122 millimeter chemical fill rockets at Khamisiyah, Iraq. This team was composed of two military officers and two civilian personnel from the Defence Research Establishment Suffield (DRES), Alberta, Canada, and augmented by two military personnel from Canadian Forces Europe, Lahr, Germany. The team was assigned the duties of detection, monitoring and meteorology, and deployed with them the DRES-designed Chemical Agent Detection System (CADS) II and the Minitube Air Sampling System (MASS). The CADS II and MASS were deployed downwind of the rocket destruction site for atmospheric monitoring and sample collection for retrospective analysis at DRES. TRUNCATED
