The BioWatch program provides 24/7/365 biological weapons threat detection and characterization of biodefense intelligence. The core requirements for the BioWatch program are derived from HSPD-10, Biodefense Strategy for the 21st Century, which provides a comprehensive framework for our Nation’s biodefense infrastructure. The BioWatch program is an early warning system that can rapidly detect trace amounts of pathogen-specific nucleic acid in the air whether intentionally released into or naturally present in the environment.
The BioWatch program also operates the Biological Warning and Incident Characterization (BWIC) system, which interprets warning signals from BioWatch and public health surveillance data using incident characterization tools (e.g., plume and epidemiological models) to quickly determine the potential impacts a release may have on the population.
The Rapidly Deployable Chemical Defense System (RDCDS) program maintains and deploys an air- and ground-based chemical detection capability for the defense of high security interest special events such as large assemblies in sports arenas or at outdoor celebrations. The detection element consists of a network of chemical, ground-based point detectors (CGPD) and a chemical airborne surveillance platform for 24/7 stand-off-detection capability.
The National Biosurveillance Integration Center (NBIC) is an integrated biosurveillance system partnering with Federal agencies, state and local governments and the private sector.
