"This was an international mission, and we worked with the UK and many other countries in order to make this happen," said Tim Blades, a director at the Edgewood Chemical Biological Center who was commander of the chemical operations team. Blades noted the UK helped with some specific chemicals in the Syrian stockpile.
"...we've enjoyed a very close relationship with the UK in this whole endeavor, and it's very much an honor to be considered as a top innovator by them," Blades said.

The destruction plan calls for the ton containers to be transferred out of their storage igloos and taken 50 yards across a road to a Chemical Agent Transfer System, said Tim Blades, a director with the U.S. Army Edgewood Chemical Biological Center who will supervise the sarin destruction. The contents of the containers will then be drained and transferred to a reactor for neutralization.
About 1.2 gallons of sarin will be processed at a time. Each batch will take an hour and 15 minutes to neutralize, with most of that time devoted to moving the ton container, Blades said.

That's when an interagency team led by Tim Blades from the U.S. Army Edgewood Chemical Biological Center in Maryland and Paul Gilmour from the U.S. Maritime Administration in Washington, D.C. stepped in to carry out a historic mission to destroy these dangerous weapons at sea-a first in the history of chemical demilitarization.
...
"Tim Blades, Paul Gilmour and their people made things happen," said Jay Santee, former deputy director of the Defense Threat Reduction Agency.
...
The process began in the summer of 2013 when Blades and his team completed the design and development of the Field Deployable Hydrolysis System, a transportable neutralization technology that can convert chemical warfare material into compounds not usable as weapons, and meets the 99.9 percent destruction rate standard set by the Chemical Weapons Convention.
But even with the innovative technology, Blades and his team still needed a location where they could deploy this "giant Erector Set" to neutralize the chemicals.
...
In only a month and a half, during the coldest winter on record in Portsmouth, Va., Gilmour, along with colleagues Jeff McMahon and Richard Goldthwaite, worked with Blades and his team to retrofit the ship and install the systems to neutralize the chemical weapons.
...
"It was two disparate groups coming together to find a way to get this mission accomplished," Blades said.
...
In January 2014, Blades and his 60-person volunteer team of field operators, technicians and chemists set sail on the Cape Ray for a six-month mission that would involve loading and neutralizing the chemical weapons in international waters.
"This is dangerous and hard work, and Tim Blades and his team did it expertly.
