The main activity of this facility was the training of officers in the Yugoslavian Army in particular technical skills that appear to have included CW knowledge. [1] This facility was the source of published work on organophosphorous compounds and the reactivation of cholinesterases in the late 1960s. [2] It is possible that this facility served as an open cover for scientists and engineering personnel engaged in the Yugoslavian CW program. [3]
