|Office of the Deputy Assistant to the Secretary of Defense for Chemical and Biological Defense Programs (OATSD(CBDP))
Provides a list of key DoD reports related to chemical and biological defense, including the Annual Report to Congress on the DoD Chemical and Biological Defense Program and various research and development plans.
U.S. Army Research, Development and Engineering Command (RDECOM)
The Commanding General of the U.S. Army Materiel Command (AMC) established the U.S. Army Research, Development & Engineering Command (RDECOM), as a new major subordinate command within AMC. This new command will restructure core in-house capabilities now so we can fully exploit the enormous potential that resides in research activities around the world. RDECOM will respond rapidly by integrating, maturing and demonstrating emerging technologies to field the right equipment, in the shortest time, for our Soldiers.
If you would like to submit a research or business proposal, business idea, recommend improvements to existing equipment or have a revolutionary idea that may be of benefit to the U.S. Army, please contact:

Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA)
DARPA is the central research and development organization for DoD. It manages and directs selected basic and applied research and development projects for DoD, and pursues research and technology where risk and payoff are both very high and where success may provide dramatic advances for traditional military roles and missions. Following are links to DARPA's biological warfare defense thrust areas:
Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA)
DTRA solicits proposals for its requirements through the Federal Business Opportunities (FedBizOpps) and the DoD Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) Program websites. As a convenience to contractors, we also provide solicitation information for our major acquisitions. While DTRA intends to keep our DTRA Solicitations list accurate and up-to-date, there may be omissions or errors.
Technical Support Working Group (TSWG)
Information on projects related to Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear Countermeasures is available at http://www.tswg.gov/subgroups/cbrnc/cbrnc.html.
Transformational Medical Technologies Initiative (TMTI)
TMTI is a Department of Defense program that was created to revolutionize protection for the Warfighter against biological threats. Visit TMTI's website (www.tmti-cbdefense.org) and click on "Open for Business" for information and list of opportunities, which are also on Federal Business Opportunities website (www.fbo.gov). TMTI encourages small businesses, small disadvantaged businesses, and other firms and entities of interest to submit proposals for research and development work (R&D) that address TMTI's goals.
Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR)
The Department of Defense (DoD) SBIR/STTR solicitations foster participation by small firms in high-tech research and development to address Department needs. Firms with 500 or fewer employees, owned and operated for profit in the United States are eligible to participate. Comprehensive SBIR/STTR Program information, including mailing list registration for the SBIR and STTR solicitations, is available from the DOD SBIR STTR web site.
DoD SBIR solicitations are issued twice per year. Topics are listed for Chemical Biological Defense along with the Air Force, Navy, Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD), Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA), and Special Operations Command (SOCOM) appear in at least one of the two releases.
