Software tools by the Aeris team of developers were exercised at the Aberdeen Proving Grounds for 12 days in June 2022. A group of Marines, Airmen, and Sailors gathered to see how advanced software, working in concert with advanced Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear (CBRN) technologies, can create a next-generation threat warning and protection capability on the battlefield. The DEVCOM CBC team, led by Fiona Narayanan, an electrical engineer, and Nuclear Biological Chemical Battlefield Integration Branch chief, served as the interface between the warfighters and the technology.
The Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) and the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command Chemical Biological Center (DEVCOM CBC) organized the Resolute Dragon 2 Advanced Technology Demonstration (ATD) of the latest CBRN science and technology (S&T) under development at DTRA and integrated by DEVCOM CBC to track and respond to threats on the battlefield in near real-time. “It was a pleasure working with warfighters who were excited to utilize the capabilities that we provided. This valuable feedback will improve multiple facets of the software system” said Aeris Managing Partner, George Bieberbach.
