The Joint Program Executive Office for Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear Defense (JPEO-CBRND) exists to manage our nation’s investments in chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear (CBRN) defense equipment. Having “Joint” in our title clarifies we support all Services. For example, we provide protective masks to the soldiers walking the streets of a battle torn country and also our Airmen flying in our skies. We also work closely with various government agencies that need CBRN defense equipment.
