Joint Service Equipment Wipe (JSEW) provides immediate/operational decontamination capabilities for sensitive and nonsensitive equipment exposed to traditional and non-traditional chemical contamination. JSEW will be the first decontamination capability available to warfighters that is nondestructive to sensitive equipment. JSEW will be employed as a means to decontaminate hazards posing threats to military operations, including peacekeeping, stability and support or consequence management operations. It will be applied directly to the contaminated surface and is capable of removing gross contamination and reducing contact hazard within five minutes of application.
