This session will present advanced scientific, technological and engineering capabilities that are being directed to help our nation and allies detect, repel, defeat, or mitigate the threat of chemical, biological and radiological weapons (CBRW). These technologies are based on fundamental research in materials and chemistry, microelectronics and sensors, computational modeling and simulation, and more recently nanotechnology. At the nexus, these lay the technical foundation for developing future solutions based on an improved understanding of complex biological systems.
