Target Research: Countering Weapons of Mass Destruction (CWMD)

(Submit NLT 22 February) 

Overview

SOFWERX, in collaboration with the U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM), Joint Program Executive Office for Chemical Biological Radiological and Nuclear Defense (JPEO CBRND), and Edgewood Chemical Biological Center (ECBC), will host a series of events to identify Countering Weapons of Mass Destruction technologies available now, under development, or anticipated to be developed. These events will provide opportunities for direct dialogue with Industry, Academia, Warfighters, and Government subject matter experts to lower barriers to working with the DoD and accelerate disruptive technologies and processing to the field.

CWMD Problem Statements 

1. Deployment of Multiple Hazard Reporting Sensors using Small
Unmanned Aircraft

2. Deployable and Disposable UAS or Throwable CBRN Point
Microsensor or Distributed Sensor Net

3. Stand-Off Detection and Identification of Airborne Hazardous
Biological Materials

4. Autonomy for Recon of CBRN (ARC)

5. Persistent Chemical, Biological, Radiological (CBR) Surveillance

6. Cooperating Robots for Area Reconnaissance

7. Man-portable hazardous chemical material standoff detection

8. Comprehensive Automated Data Collection, Aggregation, and Sharing of CBRN/CWMD Capability Information

9. Predictive Analytics to Identify Potential Hazardous Material Threats
Through Automated Data Fusion and Template Development
