For more than fifty years, researchers have been studying exactly how aspirin affects the human body. Despite thousands of publications on the topic, our understanding is still incomplete.
The Rapid Threat Assessment (RTA) program aims to provide critical information to speed production of medical countermeasures to protect U.S. forces against novel chemical and biological weapons. Such weapons have historically been mass-produced within a year of discovery. Development of countermeasures, however, currently takes far longer. Using current methods and technologies, researchers require decades of study to gain a cellular-level understanding of how new threat agents exert their effects.

Our deployed service members are exposed to adversary activity and numerous naturally occurring or engineered threats including chemicals, viruses, and bacteria. To protect them, BTO is developing technologies that can rapidly detect and characterize these threats. In addition, BTO is developing novel biological approaches to sense and report adversary activities on land and at sea.
