lessons learned
We have never fought a WMD War

We have conducted few "realistic" exercises

Salty Demo (Spangdahlem 1986)

We have considered our shortcomings at air and sea ports for a number of years

(Chemwar2000, 1997) much of this is still relevant

If we don’t agree on the threat, we have little common basis for attacking the problem

TTPs don't prescribe a situation - they react to one

Lessons Learned
future priorities
Understand the WMD Environment

Proper perspective on lab and field tests

Exercise/Test Realistically

Don' t "game" the game

Finding out where the system breaks is a good thing

Think outside the "envelope"

expect the unexpected

Future Priorities
