Comparative Analysis of Standardized NATO Requirements for Laboratory Identification of Chemical Agents and Military Technical Means for Its Implementation
AbstractDeployable chemical laboratories are considered a highly specific part of the Armed Forces of the Czech Republic, intended for Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear Defence in operations. Their professional activity is determined by a number of scientific and technical requirements, which are formulated by standards for sample identification. To achieve the required degree of credibility, it is particularly important to have specific technical capacities. This instrumentation is crucial for the implementation of laboratory analyzes. The article describes the state of chemical laboratories of the Chemical Corps in the context of standardized requirements and discusses some points of selected Alliance agreements which the Armed Forces of the Czech Republic have signed.
