Year in Review

  • DEVCOM CBC - 2022 Year in Review

    Aberdeen Proving Ground, MD — Read about the DEVCOM Chemical Biological Center’s accomplishments for 2022 in this edition of The Year in Review. You will see how the Center built upon its 105-year history to maintain and enhance its unique position conducting innovative CBRNE defense research. The year saw many new initiatives that support the warfighter and help protect the nation.

    • The Center began producing melanin in its one-of-a-kind biomanufacturing facility, an example of how the Center is at the forefront of synthetic biology.
    • Center scientists held a field demonstration with the Defense Threat Reduction Agency showing how unmanned aerial vehicles combined with chemical biological sensors can automate decontamination on the battlefield.
    • On the world stage, the Center contributed to the global elimination of chemical weapons by placing a senior scientist on the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons Scientific Advisory Board.
    • In support of industry at home, Center experts created new technology transfer agreements which invigorate the economy and expand the nation’s chemical biological defense industrial base.
    • In our surrounding communities, members of the Center workforce volunteered their time to provide STEM outreach in local schools, including using virtual reality to teach chemistry.
