Protecting Our Nation
Our nation's security is even more important now than it ever was before. The Joint Program Executive Office for Chemical and Biological Defense (JPEO-CBD) stands up to any challenges before us. We are leveraging the United States’ technological advantage to rapidly deploy state-of-the-art equipment to deter, detect, and if necessary, deal with the consequences of a weapon of mass destruction attack. The JPEO-CBD works side-by-side with the Department of Homeland Security and other agencies in the on-going effort to guard against the CBRN threat.
Protecting Our Warfighters
Our challenge in the 21st Century is to defend our nation against the unknown, the unexpected and the unseen. We must defend our cities, support our allies and protect our Warfighters against new forms of attack. This is not an impossible task. The JPEO-CBD is responding with research, development, acquisition and fielding of CBRN defense equipment and medical countermeasures. Our military and civilian acquisition professionals, along with a dedicated industrial base, are simultaneously developing the next generation of mobile, agile and modular chemical and biological defense systems. Supporting Department of Defense transformation, we are applying this next-generation technology to lighten and horizontally integrate the equipment used by deploying forces over long distances, fighting new adversaries in difficult environments. The JPEO-CBD is committed to providing the best equipment and medical countermeasures at the right time, at the right cost and in the right place.
Securing Our Future
The security of our future is what the JPEO-CBD strives to protect. The JPEO-CBD develops, tests, acquires and delivers the world's most effective automated Biological Detection Systems, Medical Diagnostics and Countermeasures. Our challenge in the 21st Century is to defend our nation against the unknown, the unexpected and the unseen. We must defend our cities, our allies, and our deployed forces against new forms of attack. This is not an impossible task. The JPEO-CBD tests and acquires new and emerging technologies that are smaller, lighter and more effective, leading the battle for a safer future for our nation and our Warfighters.
