2 Department of Homeland Security

3 Homeland Security Missions  Preventing Terrorism and Enhancing Security  Securing and Managing our Borders  Enforcing and Administering our Immigration Laws  Safeguarding and Securing Cyberspace  Ensuring Resilience to Disasters Strengthening the Homeland Security Enterprise 621 E. Pratt Street, Suite 210

4 DHS S&T Mission Strengthen America’s security and resiliency by providing knowledge products and innovative technology solutions for the Homeland Security Enterprise

5 S&T Strategic Goals – Rapidly develop and deliver knowledge, analyses and innovative solutions that advance the mission of the Department. – Leverage technical expertise to assist DHS components’ efforts to establish operational requirements and select and acquire needed technologies. – Strengthen the Homeland Security Enterprise and First Responders’ capabilities to protect the homeland and respond to disasters. – Conduct, catalyze and survey scientific discoveries and inventions relevant to existing and emerging homeland security challenges. – Foster a culture of innovation and learning, in S&T and across DHS, that addresses the challenges with scientific, analytic and technical rigor. Achieving the S&T Mission in a Challenging Environment 5

8 Research &Development Partnerships 3 of S&T’s Laboratories Operate out of the Office of National Labs

9 Science and Technology (S&T) Laboratories National Biodefense Analysis and Countermeasures Center (NBACC) Ft Detrick, MD Bioterrorism Threats Transportation Security Laboratory (TSL) Atlantic City, NJ Improvised Explosive Threats National Urban Security Technology Laboratory (NUSTL) NY, NY Nuclear Detection, First Responders Plum Island Animal Disease Center (PIADC) * Off Long Island Animal Diseases Chemical Security Analysis Center (CSAC) Aberdeen, MD Chemical Threats * PIADC to be replaced by National Bio and Agro Defense Facility (NBAF) in Manhattan, KS 9

10 CSAC - Lab at a Glance 10 Chemical Security Analysis Center, Aberdeen Proving Ground – Edgewood Area (APG-EA), Edgewood, MD Co-Located with DoD for improved capability and ROI Established in 2006, CSAC is one of five DHS/S&T Laboratories Focus is on understanding and mitigating toxic chemical threats and hazardous chemical processes Edgewood, MD location leverages Army expertise in the areas of chemical defense, chemical threat agents, and toxic industrial chemicals 2 nd MOA signed in May, 2011 reinforces the cooperative relationship between DHS/S&T’s CSAC and DoD Chemical Security Analysis Center (CSAC) Transportation Security Laboratory (TSL) National Biodefense Analysis and Countermeasures Center (NBACC) National Urban Security Technology Laboratory (NUSTL) Plum Island Animal Disease Center (PIADC)

11 CSAC Project Overview Approach  Focus on information related to chemical threats  Integration and analysis of chemical threat information and data  Reachback capability to provide expert analysis support  Fusion of information from different communities  Coordinate all activities with stakeholders/customers  Only Homeland Security Enterprise activity whose primary focus is  Data and information collection and collation (Library)  Threat and Risk Analysis  Significant leveraging occurring with intra- DHS and interagency stakeholders Goal: To provide an enduring capability to identify and characterize the chemical threat against the American homeland and American public. Basic Science Chemical Industry Intelligence Community Operational Requirements CSAC CSAC-11 This project provides the base funding for the CSAC to be a “one stop shop” for Chemical Threat related information for the Interagency.

12 CSAC Major Tasks 12 This Project provides the core funding for the CSAC activities Provides an enduring capability for chemical threat awareness and knowledge management Capability is heavily utilized within DHS and the Homeland Security Enterprise

13 CSAC’s Priorities in FY14 13 Jack Rabbit Field Tests Chemical Terrorism Risk Assessment S&T Based Reachback Non-Traditional Agents 6

14 Chemical Defense Collaboration at APG – Edgewood Area 14 Public Health Command (PHC) Medical Research Institute for Chemical Defense (MRICD) Joint Program Executive Office for Chemical and Biological Defense (JPEO-CBD) Aberdeen Proving Ground – Edgewood Area (APG-EA), Edgewood, MD Facilities Personnel Reports and Analysis Joint Projects Contracting Vehicles Subject Matter Expertise Edgewood Chemical Biological Center (ECBC) Chemical Security Analysis Center (CSAC) MOU with DoD in place since DoD personnel detailed to CSAC Use of DoD contracts and contracting Access to DoD libraries and reports

15 CSAC Project Objectives Primary Objective: Provide relevant information and analyses to the homeland security enterprise To do so, this project must – Maintain a series of complex report, information and data libraries that are fully searchable, current, and accessible to the HSE – Conduct relevant analyses pertaining to the chemical threat, both relative to specific chemicals, and methodologies for the employment of those chemicals – Identify gaps in our knowledge regarding hazardous chemicals – Fill those identified, high priority data gaps Major Deliverables – Full text searchable Chemical Threat library (FY14) – NTA Library (FY14, FY15, FY16) – Chemical Terrorism Risk Assessment Desktop Tool Suite v2.0 (FY14) – Jack Rabbit II demonstration (2, FY15, FY16) – Chemical Terrorism Risk Assessment (FY16) – Computational Toxicology demonstration (FY15-16)
