)-- DSI’s Joint Civil & DoD CBRN Symposium is designed as an educational and training “Town Hall” forum, where thought leaders and key policy-makers across military and civilian organizations can come together for actionable discussions and debate. The symposium’s overall theme will focus on Joint CBRN Defense, Training & Readiness and the changing budget landscape for Joint CBRN Response, technology and supporting Industry.
New technology in CBRN defense equipment is critical to enable assistance to state and local governments in response to and recovery from the effects of a CBRN event.
“You can expect to hear from OSD and policy makers, homeland security leadership and local counterparts on, from establishing medical countermeasures (MCM) to Research, Development, Test and Evaluation (RDT&E) of CBRN technologies and the latest on national Biosurveillance initiatives,” said Luis Hernandez, Senior Partner and Director of DSI’s Joint CBRN Symposium. The symposium will also advance dialogue in developing synergistic, technologically advanced environmental surveillance; point-of need diagnostic capabilities against CBRN threats to enable force protection decisions and risk-based planning and decision-making processes within the Enterprise.
