On 08-09 May, SOFWERX, in collaboration with United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM), Joint Program Executive Office for Chemical Biological Radiological and Nuclear Defense (JPEO CBRND), and the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command Chemical Biological Center, will host a Countering Weapons of Mass Destruction (CWMD) Capability Assessment Event (CAE) to identify CWMD technologies relevant to the specific problem statements below. The collaborative CWMD DoD group intends to align transition pathways across the full technology spectrum, regardless of maturity.


Event Methodology

Interested respondents who can potentially provide solutions that meet the CWMD technology needs, must complete and submit information requested in the Quad Chart and White Paper templates located below. The USSOCOM representatives will subsequently select those respondents/submissions they feel have the highest potential to provide comprehensive, cost-effective solutions that meet their needs. Those selected respondents will be invited for the opportunity to participate in one-on-one discussions with Government representatives.
