Company Role: Battelle Memorial Institute provides certified facilities and technical expertise to
support U.S. programs for chemical demilitarization, chemical and biological (CB) non-proliferation and
treaty verification, and related environmental restoration programs. Battelle provides a full spectrum of
scientific engineering, training and support services for both military and civilian clients with weapons
of mass destruction for defense needs. Battelle provides CB defense systems analysis and engineering
support to DoD, its service departments, and to weapons systems developers in the industrial commu-
nity. For the CB defense Research, Development, Test, and Evaluation community, Battelle applies
new technologies and operational principles to the following functional areas: operations analysis;
human factors engineering; and equipment design, development, and evaluation.
Chemical and Environmental Technologies (CET)
Battelle executes projects involving a wide variety of hazardous materials. The CET group brings
Battelle's analytical chemistry, analysis, design, and engineering skills to projects typically involving
chemical defense and survivability and chemical demilitarization support.
Additionally, it performs other difficult organic analyses and syntheses. Battelle's Hazardous Materials
Research Center (HMRC), located in rural West Jefferson, Ohio is approved by the DoD to handle
chemical surety material (CSM). The HMRC is certified both in the U.S. Army Chemical and Biological
Defense Command's Contractor Performance Certification Program (CP)2 and in accordance with ISO
9001. Additionally, Battelle operates CSM laboratories for the U.S. Army Materiel Command's Treaty
Laboratory at Aberdeen Proving Ground (Edgewood Area), Maryland, and for the U.S. Army Test and
Evaluation Command's West Desert Test Center at Dugway Proving Ground, Utah.
Aerosol Engineering and Biological Defense Science
In compliance with the Food and Drug Administration's regulations for licensing drugs and vaccines,
Battelle assesses the safety and efficacy of medical countermeasures against chemical and biological
agents. Battelle develops, tests, evaluates, and modifies a variety of biological agent detection systems
for the Joint Services including BL-3 operations. The Aerosol Science and Technology (AS&T) group
develops lab experimental and field test procedures for battlefield smoke/obscurants, and characterizes
smoke dispersal systems and munitions. The AS&T group predicts point-source emissions and the
transport/atmospheric fate of aerosols by means of modeling and field assessments for industrial
processes.

Knowledge Management and Information Analysis
Battelle provides specialized data systems and content to the CB community via an integrated team of
professionals supporting three distinct functions: content development, data processing (electronic
conversion and cataloging), and information technology. Applying its scientific and technical expertise
to select and analyze relevant source documents, Battelle produces electronic encyclopedias containing
comprehensive articles on CB warfare, CB defense, chemical agents, and agents of biological origin.
Battelle's content development group conducts extensive data mining to produce articles at various
levels of understanding, and publishes the related full-text source documents in electronic format. Our
electronic processing team converts hardcopy and electronic source information for use by our informa-
tion storage and dissemination systems. Large volumes of information are processed using state-of-the-
art document conversion systems and software. Additionally, Battelle utilizes the latest information
technologies to deliver web-accessible databases and knowledge bases (full-text/image) describing
historical research and development programs for CB weapons. We also develop and support the
infrastructure (servers and software) necessary to deliver high quality web based content.
Energetic Systems & Security Technology
In support of Federal Government counter-terrorism (CT) programs, Battelle focuses its research on
characterization and suppression of bomb threats/effects, and on development of explosion contain-
ment, transport and mitigation devices. For clients in the CT and aviation security communities,
Battelle supports R&D for explosive detection systems and conducts factory acceptance and field tests
of equipment for detecting threat devices and hazardous/illicit substances. Additionally, Battelle has
tested and evaluated a developmental CB Explosive Ordnance Disposal Suit and related protective
equipment. Battelle specifies and develops laboratory simulants for CB agents, and high fidelity
simulators of foreign missile warheads (including bulk and submunition configurations). Battelle has
assessed the vulnerability of CB agents to destruction by various means, including shock, heat, light
and chemical methods. The West Jefferson, Ohio, test site has a Hypervelocity Impact Facility with
light gas guns and special impact chambers and related instrumentation for testing agent simulant
and target response. The site also has 3 indoor explosion containment chambers (up to 50 lb. TNT-
equivalent), 3 integral ballistic ranges (up to 5-inch cal. projectiles), and facilities for storage, disassem-
bly, and development of explosives, propellants and pyrotechnic-based materials and devices.

Human Performance and Ergonomics
The operational effectiveness of CB clothing and protective equipment always hinges on the quality of
system integration with the user’s body, and its compatibility with mission-essential activities. The
design, development, and testing of products and systems for use in a CB environment is particularly
challenging due to the safety and cost constraints involved; and an understanding of the human
factors considerations right from the start is critical to producing a successful product.
Human Performance and Ergonomics defines interactive relationships and functions between humans
and machines, whether people serve as users or maintainers of the system. We can ensure that sys-
tems of interacting people, machines, and environments are efficient, safe, reliable, and easily used.
Battelle has applied ergonomic principles and knowledge of human performance to the design and
evaluation of products, software, and systems for decades.




Our organization develops safe, effective products and systems by providing:
   •   Human Performance Data Collection and Analysis
   •   Test Protocol Development for Human Behavior & Function
   •   Human Factors for Chemical/Biological Environments
   •   Expertise in Training, Animation/Visualization, and Knowledge Management
   •   Clothing & Equipment Design, Development & Evaluation


At Battelle, you have access to a team of human factors engineers, cognitive psychologists, biomedical
engineers, physical anthropologists, and industrial/systems engineers. They provide technical knowl-
edge in human characteristics and abilities, physiology and performance, human modeling, usability,
anthropometry, biomechanics, task analysis & simulation, and MANPRINT to minimize the cost of
development and maximize the effectiveness of the final product.

Technology SnowPlow

  The CB world is going through dramatic changes as
  organizations experience:
       •   Shift from Niche Markets to Mass Markets for CB Technology
       •   Unprecedented Demand for Technology Insertion
       •   Expansion of Traditional Roles
       •   Addition of New Roles
       •   Personnel Dynamics – Fluidity of the Workforce
       •   Birth of New Agencies

Leaders are faced with a vast array of technology choices and precious little time to separate the
effective alternatives from the “snow jobs”. This has led to a need for a comprehensive process to
locate, analyze, assess and index technologies and technological capabilities as they relate
to user requirements and objectives. Based on Battelle’s extensive history of analyzing technology
in support of decision makers, the concept of a Technology SnowPlow has emerged.
Technology SnowPlow activities include:               Technology SnowPlow experiences

COMPANY BACKGROUND
Commonwealth Biotechnologies, Inc. (CBI), has a long history of service to
government agencies and has provided program management for long-term
contracts. CBI has formed research CRADAs with numerous US government
research facilities and agencies. The experience and our record of outstand-
ing technical service have leveraged CBI into the position as a leader in the industry.
Overview of CBI
Four experienced research scientists founded CBI in 1992 to provide sophisticated research and devel-
opment services on a contract basis to the biotechnology industry. CBI’s customers consist of private
companies, academic institutions and government agencies, all of which use biological processes to
develop products for health care, agricultural and other purposes. CBI has developed a strong reputa-
tion as a leading provider of biotechnology research and development of analytical services. Providing
a wide range of services is an important element of our strategy. There are few major competitors
which offer integrated DNA/RNA and protein/peptide technologies and none that offer these tech-
nologies combined with sophisticated biophysical techniques, such as calorimetry, spectroscopy and
mass spec analysis.




                    Thus, CBI can provide “one-stop shopping” for biotechnology services
CBI is currently located in a new, 32,000 ft2 state-of-the-art facility located in the Gateway Centre Office
Park, Chesterfield County, Virginia. This facility houses all of CBI’s equipment and personnel. Each
laboratory at CBI is fully equipped with necessary power, water, fume and/or bio-safety hoods. CBI
operates a fully equipped and certified 500+ square ft BSL-3 laboratory. The BSL-3 laboratory is
equipped with a bio-vestibule (190 sq ft) for changing, all the necessary safety equipment, autoclave,
incubators, water baths, and analysis equipment. CBI operates a CLIA certified clinical DNA Reference
lab and fully functional computer center

CBI PRODUCTS AND SERVICES
Vaccine Development/Clinical Support
CBI provides support for Vaccine development by offering an array of clinical Biosafety testing services,
assays and protocol development under GLP and 21 CFR guidelines. CBI’s focus has been laboratory
analysis throughout the process of manufacture of pre-clinical and early-stage (Phase I/II) clinical trial
materials for vaccines cultivated by mammalian cell culture. Being fully integrated, CBI can work with a
client from the initial development stage (concept), provide the scientific laboratory support all the way
through final product Biosafety testing and stability studies prior to distribution to clinical trial sites
(clinic).
CBI Pathogen Testing Service
CBI has developed expertise over the past six years in biodefense related contracts to both government
and industry. CBI has developed services for microbial pathogen detection, on-site sampling and
monitoring solutions to provide effective means for detecting and identifying pathogenic agents
including Anthrax. CBI’s support combines expert consultation with rapid response and result.
Environmental Testing/Powders
During the course of investigation, important information may be
obtained from sampling the environment where the exposure may
have occurred. Testing of the environment is useful for detecting
trace amounts of anthrax spores. Lab testing of powders or other
materials suspected of harboring anthrax bacteria can be performed.

                     Monitoring
                     CBI experts can work with you to devise continual monitoring of your facility or
                     place of business for detection of anthrax or other agents. CBI’s monitoring
                     program can include post-decontamination surface testing and viability testing of
                     decontaminated materials.

Mass Spec Analysis
CBI has been in the forefront of MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry performing foundation studies in toxin
research as well as in the pathogen identification field.
Food Safety Testing
Currently at CBI we use PCR-based kits combined with the latest in microbiological and molecular
biological assays to improve the continued safety of the nation’s food supply. CBI has initiated a rapid
and sensitive food-safety testing platform to detect pathogens in foods and production facilities.

 NBC Arms Control Implementation
 CSC National Security Programs provides government clients analytical
 and technical support in NBC counterproliferation, arms control, fissile
 material safeguards, and export controls. We assess emerging verifica-
 tion technologies; evaluate safeguards design; support nuclear material
 protection, control, and accountability; forecast biodefense and biotech-
 nology issues; assess CW weapons developments and controls; and help
 develop alternate treaty protocols that mitigate national risks.



 The Center for Industry Arms Control Implementation

 We use unique methods and expertise to assist private companies in implementing the require-
 ments of the Chemical Weapons Convention, including preparing for and hosting international
 inspection teams. Our support—typically site assistance visits, preparation of documentation,
 training programs, and on-site support during actual inspections—enables facilities to minimize
 expense and disruption, protect proprietary and confidential business information and comply
 with applicable U.S. laws and regulations. We also provide similar assistance for security and
 counterterrorism programs, and to define vulnerabilities and difficulties with prospective measures
 for implementation of biological arms control agreements.


 Other Products/Services in Counterproliferation and Consequence Management
 CSC National Security Programs provides training plans, curriculum, and
 on-site instruction for U.S. Government international counter-prolifera-
 tion, export control, small arms destruction, and weapons of mass
 destruction inspection programs in 24 countries in Europe, Latin
 America, and Asia. We designed and have run the Defense Threat
 Reduction Agency Chemical Technology Security Course since 1998.
 For industry and government, we help to reduce risk and maximize
 security through protection of people, programs, and confidential or
 proprietary information and technologies. Measures include facility
 vulnerability assessments, continuity of operations planning, operations and information security
 planning and integration strategies, as well as seminars, workshops, training exercises, on-site inspec-
 tion support, and program metrics, testing, and validation.
 We design and implement technical education and public information outreach programs, including
 information campaigns, articles, fact sheets, pamphlets, reference guides, and multimedia web, CD,
 and video production.
 We develop and use expert knowledge systems to screen open source and other data for explicit and
 implied sensitive and classified information.

D2-Puff™ is a decision-support tool that
enhances public protection by predicting the
path and consequences of a cloud of airborne
toxins. The model can be used for planning
or response to an incident involving industrial
agents or weapons of mass destruction (WMD).
D2-Puff™ represents technological advances
over standard dispersion models. It accounts
for the way in which changes in weather
and geography influence the movement of
airborne toxins, giving a more realistic picture
of the hazard.
D2-Puff™ offers users a unique and cost-effec-
tive combination of speed, ease of use, and        IEM has developed an array of specialized
accuracy. It was hailed by independent gov-        technologies for CBRNE events and Home-

BIOQUELL has developed new low temperature residue-free
bio-decontamination technology using hydrogen peroxide
combined with a unique feed back loop system to control
the dew point. Hydrogen peroxide vapor is an excellent low
temperature biocide which, once the bio-deactivation
process has finished, can be catalytically converted to water
and oxygen.
BioQuell has been evaluated and tested by Porton Down in
the UK and is currently being evaluated by the US EPA.

RTI was formed in 1992 and has a proven track record of providing turnkey solutions, Systems Engineering and
Software Development, as well as on-site consulting and engineering support in the CBRNE market. We have a
diverse group of talented software and hardware engineers who practice proven design, development and
implementation processes and standards. RTI has partnered with Major Defense Contractors to provide quality
solution in CBRNE and Homeland defense. With SensorView, RTI has improved the development time and quality
of Interoperable and Network Centric solutions.
RTI is organized into four distinct divisions to better serve our clients' focus and needs:
   • RTI's Software Systems Division (SSD) provides hard-core and/or real-time embedded and mission critical solutions to
     government, military and commercial customers. For instance, SSD was selected as the prime software contractor for
     the Joint Biological Point Detection System (JBPDS), which is the premier biological point detector for the Army, Air
     Force, Marines, and Navy. This division's featured NBC product is "SensorViewTM" (www.sensorview.com), which is a
     networked command, control, and monitoring COTS system for nuclear, biological, chemical, and explosives sensors
     that provides plug and play capability to connect a variety of sensor types over different standard interfaces. RTI was
     also selected to produce the Automated Carrier Quality Control System (ACQCS) which provides fully automated
     quality control analysis of JBPDS immunoassay strips and carriers. Finally, RTI provides, on behalf of PM-JBPDS, the
     Quality Assurance (QA) lead for the JBPDS production contract.
   • RTI's E-Solutions Division (ESD) combines our experience in mission critical systems, distributed systems, web develop-
     ment, and knowledge environments to provide our customers with cutting-edge IT solutions for distributed e-business
     and web infrastructure. For example, RTI developed two turn key systems for ExxonMobil that are used for i) Loss
     Prevention (Incident Reporting and Tracking), as well as ii) Cargo tracking and management.
   • RTI's Mobile Solutions Division (MSD) works closely with the other RTI divisions to provide support in the areas of
     wireless communication and portable device data management. MSD solutions deal with real-time data management
     as well as mission critical solutions to government/military and commercial customers. For instance, MSD was selected
     to proto-type hand-held solutions and Emergency Management Systems for first responders by LMI. In addition, MSD
     has developed a handheld computing application that allows remote command, control, and monitoring of nuclear,
     biological, chemical, and explosive sensors and sensor suites.
   • RTI's Professional Services Division (PSD) provides both on-site and off-site consulting and engineering support. PSD has
     formed long-term and on-going relationships with companies such as Lockheed Martin, Motorola, Logistics Manage-
     ment Institute, and Hughes Network Systems, to support their continuing engineering and consulting needs.


RTI employees are expected to work with the customer. They are rewarded when they commit to understanding
and fulfilling the customer’s needs and expectations. They are taught to operate on the basic, but fundamental,
principle of, "Say what you mean, and mean what you say." This philosophy is not a mere axiom or marketing
slogan, but rather, it is a standard RTI business practice and is a distinguishing attribute. RTI's business practices
are customer-centered, and we believe Customer Relationship Management (CRM) does not start with a com-
puter system, but with the personal relationship between RTI and its customer, as well as the pride in the work
that the RTI employee have in the final solution.
RTI is headquartered in Fairfax Virginia, with additional on-site personnel at client locations in Virginia, Maryland,
and California. RTI possesses a full suite of servers on a wide area network (WAN) consisting of Windows XP/2K/
NT and Red Hat Linux servers, which provide application development, Intranet, Extranet and communications
with satellite offices. Furthermore, RTI has a proven track record in scaling its resources (personnel / staffing,
hardware assets, and facilities) to facilitate large projects and/or changing requirements in order to meet our
customers' project cost and schedule objectives.

Chemical and Biological Defense Research,
Development, Testing, Evaluation and Analysis
Southern Research Institute is an independent, not-for-profit corporation of approximately 600
employees located in Birmingham, Alabama, and Frederick, Maryland. For over 50 years,
Southern has provided research, development, testing, evaluation, and field support services
to the U.S. Government in the areas of chemical and biological defense.
Southern has both a 2500-square-foot, ISO-9001 registered chemical surety laboratory and
modern, well-equipped BSL-2 and BSL-3 laboratories. The surety laboratory is approved by the
U.S. Army for the storage and use of neat liquid agents, with a 1-liter aggregrate total of GA,
GB, GD, TGD, HD, VX, L, HT, and T on hand. Southern maintains a DoD facility security clear-
ance through TOP SECRET, and most staff members working in the Chemical and Biological
Defense areas hold at least SECRET clearances.
Over the past two decades, members of Southern’s current staff have made a number of
groundbreaking technical contributions to the nation’s chemical defense program. These include
the development of the automated and manual chemical-agent monitoring techniques (ACAMS,
MINICAMS‚, and DAAMS) that currently support the ongoing destruction of the U.S. stockpile of
CW munitions and the pioneering development and use of automated methods for measuring

To address shortcomings in traditional pattern recognition algorithms based on linear or quadratic
discriminants, SRI has developed compelling multivariate statistical inference techniques, particularly
estimation and hypothesis testing, that can be used to construct optimal detection algorithms based
on the likelihood ratio test methodology. Maximum likelihood estimates of parameters and their
uncertainty are derived as byproducts of the detection test. This approach has been successfully
applied to multicomponent concentration/pathlength detection and estimation using lidar with
frequency agile laser sources.

Homeland Security Technologies
While homeland defense has recently become the nation’s top
priority, TIAX has been a key contributor to protecting the
citizens and resources of the United States for decades. The
scientists and engineers at TIAX have taken a leading role in
working with commercial firms and U.S. government agencies
to identify, develop, and leverage technologies and methodolo-
gies that safeguard the public from potential exposure to toxic
chemical and biological agents.
Our personnel have a deep understanding of defense against
weapons of mass destruction, with expertise in integrated field deployable systems. We quickly create
project teams that draw from many disciplines necessary for effective systems integration, including
analytical, organic, and biochemistry; chemical engineering; microbiology; software engineering;
mechanical and electrical engineering; and other pertinent physical and life sciences. These skills
enable us to rapidly develop and test prototypes that support national security initiatives for both
government and commercial clients.
Using a network of academic research institutions, national laboratories, and private industry, TIAX
effectively takes state-of-the-art technologies into prototypes that can be field-tested and commercial-
ized on an accelerated schedule. Each stage of development: proof-of-concept, prototype develop-
ment, and commercialization, can typically be completed in six to nine months. Our proven product
development process ensures that all critical steps are addressed in a comprehensive, yet cost-effective
manner to meet market needs.
We assist our government clients in adopting the most innovative commercial manufacturing technolo-
gies available. We bring our commercial clients knowledge of specific government needs and prac-
tices, as well as an understanding of advanced, state-of-the-art government technology efforts. All of
our work is carried out under an ISO 9001 quality assurance system.
Harmful Agent Detection, Protection, and Decontamination
For a government agency, TIAX developed a foam-based product capable of decontaminating both
chemical and biological agents. We exceeded expectations by developing a decontamination system
that is non-toxic, biodegradable, inexpensive, and effectively neutralizes both types of toxic species. A
patent has been filed on the technology and we are seeking partners for commercialization. For the
same agency, we are developing an inexpensive personal alarm monitor to detect low levels of nerve
gas. These programs involved working
with leading-edge commercial companies to turn their products into working prototypes of interest to
the government community.

Military Field Systems
The Armed Services face an increasingly
complex job in a world where conflicts
can arise at any time and any place. The
modern military must orchestrate person-
nel, materiel, doctrine, and information
to produce a highly responsive force that
can respond to a full spectrum of mission
scenarios. Conflicts increasingly involve
deploying smaller groups that fight
smarter through use of technologies that
allow them to maneuver quickly and
accurately worldwide. Filling that bill requires focusing on intellectual and technological innovation.
TIAX designs large-scale electro-mechanical systems that integrate multiple proven technologies into
practical, cost-effective systems deployed in the field. This equipment must operate under severe
conditions such as extremes in temperature, humidity, high shock, and vibration.
We have a history of providing government clients with innovative, effective system designs. Our
military field systems allow the military greater mobility with less weight and bulk. We quickly form
multidisciplinary project teams, drawing on expertise that ranges from systems engineering and fluid
mechanics to acoustic technology. TIAX employs a proven rapid product development process in
which we take the best ideas from both industry and government to develop truly unique solutions.
Some of our recent work includes:
Designing Modular Aircraft Support Systems
The staff at TIAX worked with the Air Force Research Laboratory to demonstrate a new line of equip-
ment that can take advantage of modern technologies, manufacturing techniques, and design con-
cepts to leapfrog existing equipment. We designed a modular approach that allows aircraft support
equipment to be customized to each aircraft and reduce the aerospace ground equipment deploy-
ment cost by up to 50 percent.
Developing Complex Medical Support Systems
The professionals at TIAX helped the U.S. Air Force develop a transportable system capable of receiv-
ing, inspecting, and preparing shipments of both frozen and liquid blood from virtually any location
worldwide. We developed a fully functional Transportable Blood Transshipment Center (TBTC) that was
highly reliable, self-sufficient (in terms of power and water storage), and transportable by cargo plane.
The system can be set up and fully functional within 24 hours and operate in temperatures ranging
                       .
from -20°F to 120°F The Air Force used our prototype design to create six additional TBTCs.

Wearable Systems
Today’s growing emphasis on mobility is reflected in almost every
aspect of daily life. Staying plugged into the latest business develop-
ments through PDAs used to be enough. But now the benefits of
mobility—immediacy, efficiency, safety, improved performance,
convenience—seem to have limitless applications. The move toward
increased miniaturization of electronic components and enhanced
connectivity means these applications may become reality. Imagine
mobile diagnostic equipment that assesses injuries at the scene of an
accident. What about wearable medical monitoring devices that
keep us a step ahead of disease and infection? Shouldn’t our nation’s first responders be equipped with
wearable technology that detects biological and chemical warfare agents? Couldn’t our soldiers have
communications and navigational capabilities integrated directly into their uniforms?
TIAX’s expertise in Wearable Systems can help you capitalize on these enormous market opportunities.
This area seamlessly integrates a wide range of key capabilities, including human factors, functional
clothing, industrial design, embedded systems, hardware and software design, and portable power to
deliver the best solutions. As members of national standards and testing organizations, TIAX profession-
als don’t just develop products—we help set the standards.
Our Wearable Systems professionals work with clients to take their products from concept to commer-
cialization. We develop and enhance emerging technologies for application in new market opportuni-
ties, identify market needs and opportunities, evaluate product concepts, and create models and
prototypes. We create devices for healthcare (monitoring, diagnostics, and care delivery), industrial
equipment operators, business professionals, and the aging population. Our work for both govern-
ment and commercial clients draws on our strong background in building complex systems for high-
performance environments.
Equipping the Soldier of the Future
For more than a decade, we have worked with the U.S. Army to design warrior systems. Our ad-
vanced gloves provide warmth to troops operating in frigid conditions. Our survival equipment system
for helicopter pilots and crews improves mobility and increases survivability. And our concepts for the
complete combat uniform of the future include an integrated protective ensemble with advanced
capabilities, such as heating and cooling, physiological monitoring, and navigation.
