In the 20 years since the demise of the Cold War, changing strategic and operational priorities have reduced the emphasis on the need for nuclear, biological and chemical (NBC) or the more inclusive chemical, biological, radiological nuclear (CBRN) defence. Without the apparently imminent threat of nuclear war, a whole generation has matured without specific and immediate concerns of CBRN attack on the battlefield. As a result, planners naturally concentrated their efforts in areas that are of current importance: the new strategic direction, and current operations.
