The objective of this study was to identify emerging technical, methodological, and infrastructure challenges for future Chemical and Biological Defense (CBD) Test and Evaluation (T&E) investment, and to serve as a prequel to the development of a full strategic T&E Roadmap. Science and technology has been moving at an exponential pace, especially within disciplines critical to the CBD program. These primarily include the biological sciences, especially systems and synthetic biology and structural biology; information science, particularly bioinformatics; nanotechnology, specifically the ability to tailor nanomaterials from "the ground up," and to design and fabricate devices on the nanoscale; and combinatorial chemistry. These rapid developments underpin both next generation threats and new countermeasure technologies that must be subjected to rigorous T&E before fielding.
