This document provides guidance to public affairs officers in preparation for questions on the Homeland Defense Chemical Biological Umbrella (HDCBU) Program Test. As part of the Homeland Defense Chemical Biological Umbrella (HDCBU) Program, the Multi-Mission Sensor (MMS) Team conducted a system technical end-to-end test vicinity of Oklahoma City (OKC) from April 27 - May 11, 2004. This is the seventh in a series of tests designed to evaluate the feasibility of radars for early warning of a chemical or biological aerial release. The data collected will be used to determine the technical readiness of the radar early warning software and algorithms being developed by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Lincoln Laboratories and of the overall system.
