)-- Defense Strategies Institute second iteration of the Joint Civil & DoD CBRN Symposium (March 17 -18, 2014) is the foremost community Joint CBRN event for North America. The rapid advancement and global proliferation of chemical and biological capabilities has greatly extended the full spectrum of threats against US warfighters, interest, and homeland. New developments enable our nation’s state and non-state adversaries to develop unique CBRN threats with the intent of evading our current defenses. To ensure effective response to these threats, and to guarantee a whole of government approach to these pressures, DSI will convene leaders in Defense, Federal Agencies, Academia and Industry to address the most up to date solutions and strategic direction for the CBRN defense community.
Confirmed Speakers Include:
*Dr. J. Ben Petro - Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Nuclear, Chemical, and Biological Defense Programs
*Kenneth A Myers - Director, Defense Threat Reduction Agency
*Deborah Shuping - Chief, CBRND Test and Evaluation Division, Deputy Under Secretary of the Army, Test and Evaluation
*COL Ken Shaw - Deputy Commander, Clinical Support Services Ft. Belvoir Community Hospital
*William B. Daitch - Assistant Director, Domestic Nuclear Detection Office, DHS, National Technical Nuclear Forensics Center
