From the opening statement of Jack Reed: "The subcommittee meets today to hear testimony on technology to combat weapons of mass destruction (WMD). We are fortunate to have started with a demonstration of a number of technologies being developed or fielded for our military and other government agencies, including some technologies that are used here in the Homeland to protect our population. […] We hope to learn today about the challenges you all face in trying to develop these technologies, the successes that you have had, and how this technology fits into our numerous efforts to combat WMD. We thank you and all of those who you work with for your dedicated efforts to keep our Nation and our military forces safe from these dangerous threats. We appreciate that your agencies also had a role in the response to and decontamination of the Senate office buildings after the anthrax attacks of October 2001. We look forward to hearing your testimony." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Jack Reed, James A. Tegnelia, Stephen Reeves, and T. Jan Cerveny.
