Army team to destroy Syrian chemical weapons afloat

01-03-2014

This tent, inside the Cape Ray, a nearly 650-foot-long ship, contains two "field deployable hydrolysis systems." The FDHS is designed to neutralize chemical weapons. Each $5 million system can, depending on the material, process between 5 to 25 metric tons of material a day. With two systems, that means as much as 50 metric tons a day of chemical warfare agents can be destroyed. The mission requires disposal of 700 metric tons of material.

Frank Kendall, under secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics, spoke outside the Cape Ray, Jan. 2, to discuss the ship's upcoming mission to destroy chemical weapons.

Two of these "field deployable hydrolysis systems" are now installed on the Cape Ray, a nearly 650-foot-long ship now in Portsmouth, Va. The FDHS is designed to neutralize chemical weapons. Each $5-million system can, depending on the material, process between 5 to 25 metric tons of material a day.
