CBRN Military Advisory Team

We have more than a dozen on-call quick response units to deal with worst-case scenarios involving WMD and accidents or natural disasters involving chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear (CBRN) materials. These CBRN Military Advisory Teams (CMATs) provide task-organized, deployable, and technical expertise support, advice, and hazard prediction assistance for the Department of Defense and other Federal agencies during all phases of accidents or incidents of a CBRN nature. CMATs often have additional specialists in public affairs, legal counsel, radiobiology and other fields, working across the Federal government and academia to provide timely mission critical information to America’s warfighters and partners.
