ABSTRACT

Bio-Defense Now: 56 Suggestions for Immediate Improvements; Final Report, 85% Biological Defense Project   [open pdf - 2MB]

"The 85% Biological Project identifies those ideas that can significantly improve the defensive capabilities and facilitate military forces survival, operation, and sustainment in a biologically contaminated environment. The 100% biological warfare (BW) defense solution is difficult, if not impossible, to obtain. The purpose of the '85% Biological Defense Project,' hereafter referred to as the '85% Project' is to determine if there are quick-to-implement ideas using available technologies or capabilities that have not yet been adequately addressed to enhance our military forces' protection against biological weapons…The ultimate goal is to reduce the biological weapons threat to U.S. and allied forces at fixed bases…This report has been prepared by U.S. Air Force Counterproliferation Center (USAF CPC) senior researchers for the Defense Threat Reduction Agency/Chemical and Biological Division (DTRA/CB). The report is targeted to be read by decision makers, commanders, staff officers, and planners in all functional areas at the DoD, major command, and installation levels."
