The Joint Program Executive Office for Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear Defense (JPEO-CBRND) fuels innovation and problem solving by providing funding for transformative technical and process-related projects.
In FY22, we are focusing on the three commitments for the future set forth by Dr. Roos, Joint Program Executive Officer for CBRN Defense—Acquisition Excellence, Transformational Capabilities, and Workplace of Choice. Transformational Capabilities include priorities of Modernizing Biological Defense (including medical and non-medical approaches), Integrated Early Warning, Unencumbering the Warfighter, approaches to countering emerging threats, and integration with non-CBRN defense capabilities. In addition to developing capabilities to put in the hands of the warfighter, JPEO is committed to bringing the best business practices and tools into the JPEO (e.g., harnessing data for better decision making, technology tracking and transition, streamlining JPEO processes), and efficiencies and workplace improvements that would support our vital workforce to the fullest extent. We seek innovative ideas from within the JPEO, as well as from partners, both existing and new!
We apply funding to transformative ideas, accomplishing what would typically take years in just months. The JPEO-CBRND seeks ideas from JPEO-CBRND staff, laboratories, industry, and end users so we may take them to the next level. Create the next game changer with SPARK!
