In order to simulate production processes and in-service conditions, an extensive array of non-standard sample preparation facilities has been retrofitted to the base system. All of these preparation techniques can be used in association with the most toxic and hazardous gaseous environments encountered during the manufacture and service life of a modern weapon system. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.
