Research and development of technologies to counter weapons of mass destruction
The Countering Weapons of Mass Destruction (CWMD) Consortium is a well-established community of industry, academia and government focused on rapid prototyping and maturing countering WMD efforts and CBRNE hazard awareness. Through an Other Transaction Agreement with the JPEO-CBRND (Joint Program Executive Office for Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear Defense), the CWMD Consortium is accomplishing the counter WMD related prototyping needs of any federal agency.
The CWMD scope spans development of PPE, detection systems, sensors, other protection needs, and situational awareness. These address consequence management/hazard mitigation; threats/vulnerabilities awareness and counter-proliferation technologies/capabilities; arms control technologies; experimentation of emerging technologies and CBRNE technologies to deliver capabilities to the warfighter.
