Medical Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN) countermeasures are an integral part of the U. S. Department of Defense (DoD) Chemical Biological Defense Program (CBDP) System of Systems approach that serves as the foundation and strength of the CBDP.
The Joint Program Executive
Office for Chemical and Biological Defense (JPEO-CBD) is organized into eight Joint Project Management Offices, each responsible for specific commodity areas.
The Chemical Biological Medical Systems Joint Project Management Office (CBMS JPMO) consists of the Joint Vaccine Acquisition Program (JVAP), Medical Identification and Treatment Systems (MITS), and Transformational Medical Technologies Initiative (TMTI) Joint Product Management Offices (JPMOs).
The medical CBRN countermeasures developed by the CBMS JPMO directly support the current, near-term, and far-term challenges by providing the capability to prevent, diagnose and treat the effects of chemical, radiological and biological warfare agents.
The JVAP JPMO provides biological protection by ensuring Warfighters immune systems are primed to protect them from selected threats.
The MITS JPMO is responsible for the advanced development of U. S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved/licensed/cleared products for prophylaxis, treatment and diagnosis of CBRN agent exposure.
The TMTI JPMO is developing and evaluating novel processes to accelerate the development and approval of medical CBRN countermeasures by leveraging lifecycle bioinformatics, enabling technologies, and other emerging technologies.
General information on JPEO-CBD and subordinate JPMOs can be obtained from the JPEO-CBD website at http://www.jpeocbd.osd.mil/.
