DTRA Demos High Performance technology solution at INDOPACOM CWMD event


The U.S. Joint Forces, international partners and capability developers participated in the Defense Threat Reduction Agency’s, (DTRA) U.S. Indo-Pacific Command (INDOPACOM), Counter-Weapons of Mass Destruction Engagement 2022 (DICE-22) technology demonstration at Marine Corps Training Area Bellows (MCTAB), Waimanalo, Hawaii last week.  

“The DICE-22 technology demonstration complemented combatant command objectives to train the Joint Forces in addressing chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear threats (CBRN),” stated Charlotte Teague, chief for DTRA’s international and combatant command engagement activities.  “Here, we will provide a platform that allows capability developers to present and demonstrate their most innovative solutions to counter CBRN and emerging threats, and offer a venue for our partners to discuss future engagement opportunities.”

Agency program managers along with international CWMD partners from Australia, Canada, and the United Kingdom gathered in conference mode to discuss regional defense-related issues.  In addition, attendees strategized on potential areas to continue collaborative efforts that deliver disruptive technologies to the U.S. Joint Forces and allied partners.   

The DICE event also executed an advanced technology demonstration of the U.S. Air Force’s Emergency Management (AFAFEM) Chemical Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear Austere Environment Reconnaissance and Surveillance (AERS) platform. U.S. Joint Force operators role-played in various realistic roles to a makeshift threat environment during the demonstration.  

“This type of engagement delivers the most impactful return on investment for decision-makers charged with CWMD efforts and bridges the gap of understanding between industry innovation and U.S. Joint Force members,” stated Teague.
