Abstract : The mission of the Department of Defense's (DoD) Joint Chemical and Biological Defense Program (CBDP) is to ensure that the U.S. military has the capability to operate effectively and decisively in the face of Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN) threats in both warfighter and homeland security missions. In order to accomplish this mission, the CBDP works to advance national interests within the CBRN defense arena by working effectively with other federal agencies, state and local governments, Congress, and the private sector. This document provides a synopsis of our goals for Fiscal Years 2006-2007 (FY06-07). Additionally, the DoD Annual Report to Congress on the Chemical and Biological Defense Program provides a more detailed overview of the CBDP, as well as a more detailed examination of the Program's objectives for the future.
