DISASTER MANAGEMENT
Leidos receives CBRNE simulation task order

Reston, Va. (UPI) Jan 27, 2017


Leidos has received a task order to provide modeling and simulation support for the U.S. Defense Threat Reduction Agency.

Under the contract, which contains two options with the potential to raise its value to $17 million, the company will provide simulation services for assessing chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosive threats, or CBRNE.

The task order was awarded as part of the Combating Weapons of Mass Destruction Research and Technology contract. Work will be performed in San Diego, Calif.; Fort Belvoir, Va.; and Omaha, Neb.

"Leidos is proud of the decades of support we have provided to DTRA's critical mission and we are honored to have been selected to continue that support," Leidos president Mike Chagnon said in a press release. "The tools developed under this contract will provide U.S. government agencies and warfighters timely and actionable information that is critical to planning for and responding to CBRNE events throughout the world."

CBRNE defenses are protective measures taken to counter chemical, biological, radiological, or nuclear warfare. In the United States, the U.S. Army, U.S. Navy and U.S. Marine Corps each have their own CBRNE defense program.

Rich? Scared about the Trumpocalypse? Try New Zealand
Wellington (AFP) Jan 28, 2017
The elevation of an unpredictable billionaire to the helm of nuclear-armed America has given fresh impetus to the idea of remote New Zealand as a bulwark for civilisation in the event of a global catastrophe. The idea has pedigree - British science fiction writer John Wyndham's 1955 novel "The Chrysalids" describes a post-apocalyptic landscape where Zealand (or Sealand) is the only place th ... read more
