The Joint Program Executive Office for Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear Defense (JPEO-CBRND) and the Joint Project Management for Nuclear, Biological, and Chemical Contamination Avoidance (JPM NBC CA) invites you to participate in a Compact Vapor Chemical Agent Detector (CVCAD) Table Top Exercise (TTX). CVCAD will be a low size, weight, and power chemical vapor detector that is intended for man-worn and mounted operations (i.e. robotic platforms). This TTX will consist of a program overview/update, followed by a series of vignettes that will be utilized to inform CVCAD concepts of operation/employment for each of the services. The optimal outcome of this TTX is to develop an understanding of the needed and desired capabilities of the CVCAD system along with an understanding of how this technology could be employed by the warfighter.
