Ground – Edgewood Area (APG-EA), Edgewood, MD
• Established in 2006, CSAC is one of five DHS/S&T Laboratories
• Focus is on understanding and mitigating toxic chemical threats and hazardous
chemical processes
• Edgewood, MD location leverages Army expertise in the areas of chemical defense,
chemical threat agents, and toxic industrial chemicals
• 2nd MOA signed in May, 2011 reinforces the cooperative relationship between
DHS/S&T’s CSAC and DoD
Co-Located with DoD for improved capability and ROI

CSAC Project Overview
Goal: To provide an enduring capability to identify and characterize the chemical
threat against the American homeland and American public.
Approach
 Focus on information related to chemical
threats
 Integration and analysis of chemical
threat information and data
 Reachback capability to provide expert
analysis support
 Fusion of information from different
communities
 Coordinate all activities with
stakeholders/customers
 Only Homeland Security Enterprise activity
whose primary focus is
 Data and information collection and
collation (Library)
 Threat and Risk Analysis
 Significant leveraging occurring with intraDHS and interagency stakeholders

CSAC Project Objectives
•
•
•
Primary Objective: Provide relevant information and analyses to the
homeland security enterprise
To do so, this project must
– Maintain a series of complex report, information and data
libraries that are fully searchable, current, and accessible to the
HSE
– Conduct relevant analyses pertaining to the chemical threat,
both relative to specific chemicals, and methodologies for the
employment of those chemicals
– Identify gaps in our knowledge regarding hazardous chemicals
– Fill those identified, high priority data gaps
Major Deliverables
– Full text searchable Chemical Threat library (FY14)
– NTA Library (FY14, FY15, FY16)
– Chemical Terrorism Risk Assessment Desktop Tool Suite v2.0
(FY14)
– Jack Rabbit II demonstration (2, FY15, FY16)
– Chemical Terrorism Risk Assessment (FY16)
– Computational Toxicology demonstration (FY15-16)
