Chem-Bio Defense Quarterly
Vol. 4 No. 3 -- Chem-Bio Defense Quarterly Magazine In recent years, we have seen nations and terrorists use chemical, biological and radiological weapons. The medical community has always been called upon to protect and treat the victims of these attacks. The Chemical Biological Medical Systems Project Management Office leads this effort on behalf of the Joint Program Executive Office for Chemical and Biological Defense, providing our Warfighters the necessary medical protection, diagnostic and treatment countermeasures against chemical, biological and radiological and nuclear threats. This Chem-Bio Defense Quarterly magazine provides an overview of Chemical Biological Medical Systems.
Vol. 4 No. 2 -- Chem-Bio Defense Quarterly Magazine Any amount of contamination, large or small, reduces the ability of the Warfighter to perform the critical missions necessary to prosecute the mission at hand. Sensitive equipment, a recent phenomenon that did not even exist a century ago, has attained such importance that rendering it useless with water-based decontaminants threatens the mission, the warrior and the fight. You can read about some of the choices in this issue of Chem-Bio Defense Magazine.
Vol. 4 No. 1 -- Chem-Bio Defense Quarterly Magazine This issue of Chem-Bio Defense Quarterly Magazine honors the accomplishments of some of our nation's prominent African American historical figures in recognition of Black History Month. In recognition of Woman's History Month, we pay tribute to two incredibly zealous women who dedicated the majority of their lives to supporting national interests through their life's work and contributions. We also take a look at Joint Program Manager Guardian and some of the highly successful projects for which it is responsible.
Vol. 3 No. 4 -- Chem-Bio Defense Quarterly Magazine -- This issue of Chem-Bio Defense Quarterly Magazine, the last for 2006, features a number of articles that discuss the Collective Protection mission to develop, procure, field and dispose of equipment and systems that collectively protect personnel and equipment from chemical, biological, radiological and toxic industrial chemical contamination.

We also take an in depth look into the Software Support Activity as well as introduce the newest Joint Project Managers for the Joint Program Executive Office for Chemical and Biological Defense.
Vol. 3 No. 3 -- Chem-Bio Defense Quarterly Magazine -- In this issue of Chem-Bio Defense Quarterly magazine, you will find an interesting article about the obstacles overcome by JPM NBC CA to ensure smoke obscuration became a part of Operation Iraqi Freedom. Also, learn how warfighters at all levels hone their practical knowledge on a new training enhancement that describes key elements of combat or other mission scenarios within a virtual environment. This issue also features an article that describes the value of military wargames that model joint chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear events by describing some of the characteristics revealed through their use.
Vol. 3 No. 2 -- Chem-Bio Defense Quarterly Magazine -- In this issue, we take a close look at the collective protection retrofit onboard the amphibious assault ship USS Bonhomme Richard (LHD-6). Joint Project Manager Collective Protection is providing protected zones that will allow shipboard personnel to work safely while the ship traverses contaminated areas. We also present an interview with Mr. Jean D. Reed, the recently appointed Special Assistant for Chemical and Biological Defense and Chemical Demilitarization Programs. Mr. Reed shares his views on the current status of the chemical and biological defense program and discusses the future of the program. His previous position as a House Armed Services Committee professional staff member allows him a unique perspective on the chemical and biological defense programs.
Vol. 3 No. 1 -- Chem-Bio Defense Quarterly Magazine -- In this issue of Chem-Bio Defense Quarterly magazine, you will hear from the Joint Test and Evaluation Executive, Mr. Walter Hollis and his thoughts on evaluating joint systems. You will also read about how the Operational Test and Evaluation Force of the United States Navy uses a multi-service test team to evaluate the Joint Biological Point Detection System onboard the USS The Sullivans.
Vol. 2 No. 4 -- Chem-Bio Defense Quarterly Magazine -- In this issue we visit the West Desert Test Center at the U.S. Army Dugway Proving Grounds in Utah and the U.S. Air Force Operational Test and Evaluation Center at Kirkland Air Force Base, New Mexico. These are two of the organizations that help independently assure the Joint Project Manager that equipment is safe and effective before fielding. We also discuss avoiding hazards altogether. Through the efforts of the joint services at the U.S. Army Chemical School and the Joint Project Manager Contamination Avoidance, substantially improved contamination marking systems were evaluated, developed, and will soon be fielded.
Vol. 2 No. 3 -- Chem-Bio Defense Quarterly Magazine -- In this issue, we talk with warfighters about applying technology to real world problems and providing warfighting capabilities. We spent some time with the 83rd Chemical Battalion, Fort Polk, LA, learning what chemical Soldiers think of their equipment and how it supports the war fight. You will hear from PFC Oscar Hernandez and PFC Derrick Smith as they describe how the training they received before reporting to the battalion prepared them for real world situations. We also look at how embedded Contractor Logistics Support works and is an integral part of supporting fielded equipment.
Vol. 2 No. 2 -- Chem-Bio Defense Quarterly Magazine -- DoD's Chemical and Biological Defense Program mission is to ensure warfighters have the best chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) defense technology and equipment available. In this issue we discuss the Non-Standard Equipment Review Panel that reviews both developmental and commercial equipment that must be urgently fielded to meet immediate operational needs. NSERP implements DoD Policy that CBRN defense equipment purchased directly by units and the services be reviewed to ensure it meets minimum standards for safety and effectiveness. Read about it in this issue of the Chem-Bio Defense Quarterly Magazine.
Vol. 2 No. 1 -- Chem-Bio Defense Quarterly Magazine -- This issue of Chem-Bio Defense Quarterly Magazine highlights both the progress and the future of individual and collective protection throughout the U.S. armed forces and the project managers delivering these new capabilities to warfighters.
