These tests allowed OSAGWI to understand better what might have happened when engineers blew up the Iraqi 122-mm rockets at the Khamisiyah pit in 1991.
An independent peer-review panel stated that OSAGWI's methodology, while improved, would "still be on the conservative side; (that is), they very likely are overestimates of the dosages actually received by personnel." DOD made the deliberate decision to be conservatively safe-sided, "on the side of the veteran," to ensure that they didn't omit anyone who could have been exposed to low levels of agents.
The Army's chemical demilitarization program is closely watching the results of OSAGWI's work because there is a definite parallel to occupational chemical agent exposure and their risk-management practices.
