Developing technologies such as radiation sensor, sonar, cargo X-ray, and chemical detection to stop attacks before they occur
Technologies to gain situational awareness and understand the actions of adversaries, including technologies for detection, analytics, vulnerability assessments, and operational readiness
Technologies to protect individuals and groups, including occular, respiratory, percutaneous, and materiel protection
The Joint Program Executive Office for Chemical and Biological Defense (JPEO-CBD) has established an Other Transaction Agreement (OTA) with the CWMD Consortium for use by agencies that have a need to prototype new technologies related to Countering Weapons of Mass Destruction. The consortium is comprised of a mixture of traditional and non-traditional contractors, small businesses, for-profit and not-for profit entities, and academia, representing the key players in the industry.
WHO CAN JOIN
Companies that are part of the US Defense Industrial base as well as new and emerging non-traditional defense contractors are encouraged to join the CWMD and participate in Federally-funded R&D projects.
Non-traditionals (Companies that don't typically participate in Federal R&D)
Advanced Technology International (ATI), the leader in R&D collaboration management, is building a consortium of premier traditional and non-traditional government contractors, small and large businesses, for-profit and not-for-profit entities, and academic organizations to perform R&D prototyping efforts in the technology areas listed above.
ATI is a private, 501(c)(3) nonprofit professional services firm whose focused expertise and core business is building and managing customized, national technology consortia. As the leader in collaboration management, we manage programs across many diverse technology sectors such as shipbuilding, ordnance, rotorcraft, electromagnetic spectrum, biotechnology, advanced materials development, and advanced manufacturing.
