DoD Chemical/Biological Defense Program Overview: Presentation to the National Academy of Sciences Board on Chemical Sciences and Technology   [open pdf - 13MB]

This presentation reiterates Rumsfeld's statement that "We need to prepare, as an Alliance, for the full range of asymmetric threats: new forms of terrorism, ... and nuclear, chemical and biological weapons of mass destruction. All of these are emerging dangers. None can be ignored. We need to prepare, as an Alliance, for the full range of asymmetric threats: new forms of terrorism, ... and nuclear, chemical and biological weapons of mass destruction. All of these are emerging dangers. None can be ignored. It should be of particular concern to all of us that the list of countries which today support global terrorism overlaps significantly with the list of countries that have weaponized chemical and biological agents, and which are seeking nuclear, chemical and biological weapons--and the means to deliver them." An overview of the CBDP vision is given here, along with current capabilities in detection and a list of acronyms at the end of the presentation.
