The Army has defined five categories of non-stockpile chemical warfare materiel: Binary chemical weapons form lethal chemical agents by mixing two less toxic chemicals. Army policy requires that the components of binary weapons only be loaded together into a munition immediately prior to use on the battlefield, thus forming the lethal chemical agent during flight to the target. Binary chemical weapons or munitions are chemical weapons which contain the toxic agent in its active state as chemical precursors which are significantly less toxic than the agent. This improves the safety of storing, transporting, and disposing of the weapon. Commonly, firing the munition removes a barrier between two precursors.
