How Air Force installations and units operate in a chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and high yield explosive environment is an evolving effort. In 2002 the Air Force implemented the counter-chemical warfare concept of operations (CONOPS) that changed how installations prepared for and responded to conventional chemical munitions attacks. The AF further defined the most probable threat as tactical ballistic missiles. That reevaluation of the threat became the basis for developing tactics, techniques and procedures (TTP) for installations to recover and continue mission operations. In 2003, the AF began investigating potential vulnerabilities for biological attacks by conducting exercises at Kunsan AB, Korea. These exercises led to the development and refinement of TTPs for responding to conventional and irregular biological warfare attacks. The resulting counter-biological warfare CONOPS was institutionalized through two Air Force Instructions: AFI 10-2603, Emergency Health Powers on Air Force Installations and AFI 10-2604, Disease Containment Planning Guidance. In 2009, the Air Force published and began implementing the Counter-Radiological Warfare CONOPS. This CONOPS is being institutionalized through this document and other Air Force and multiservice directives.
The nuclear threat has been exhaustively studied. The AF will review existing information to determine a need to change TTPs for nuclear weapon threats. This manual will incorporate the information from all CBRNE efforts as they mature in order to provide installations guidance to prepare for, respond to, and recover from a conventional or irregular CBRNE attack.
In addition to developing Counter-Chemical, Biological, Radiological CONOPS, the AF has made changes to its emergency response procedures and operations.
