Categories of Bioweapons: The Critical Agent List classifies a relatively short list of possible biological weapons to be used in either biological warfare or bioterrorism and was created by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in conjunction with military intelligence medical and public health agencies: (20)
Identify and describe the most important agents that have been developed or used in biological warfare.
Consider anti-terrorism no-brainers such as functional programs to detect nuclear weapons and biological warfare agents such as anthrax, plague and smallpox in major U.S.
Boyle said evidence the US has super-weapons-grade anthrax was demonstrated in the October, 2001, anthrax mail attacks on Senators Thomas Daschle(D-S.D.) and Patrick Leahy(D-Vt) The strain of highly sophisticated anthrax employed has allegedly been traced back to the primary US Army biological warfare campus at Ft.
"The ability to rapidly and accurately detect chemical and biological warfare material is fundamental to our nation's defense," said Jim Zarzycki, ECBC Director.
The system works like an early-warning smoke detector, but instead is used in public areas where terrorists could target a large number of people with biological warfare. It is a small unit - 10 pounds - but has a rapid response time and, according to Keinan, requires little maintenance, increasing its cost effectiveness.
This collection of essays focuses on aspects of biological warfare that have acquired new importance since the terrorist attacks of 11 September 2001 and the mailings of letters containing anthrax.
FORT SAM HOUSTON, Texas -- The Joint Biological Agent Identification and Diagnostic System (JBAIDS), a 40-pound device small enough to slip into a rucksack, is designed to vastly increase the speed and accuracy of biological warfare agent detection.

With funding from the Defense Advanced Research Project Agency, the central research and development agency of the Department of Defense, Griffith designed a prototype "liver on a chip." The liver is highly sensitive to all kinds of environmental toxicants, and the objective of the initial work was to develop a tiny, portable biosensor that could be used in battlefield deployment for early detection of environmental hazards from chemical and biological warfare. Continuing support for further development of the liver chip for sensing applications is provided by the Institute for Soldier Nanotechnologies at MIT.
As part of Washington state's biological warfare defense, veterinarians recently began monitoring unusual small animal deaths for evidence of tularemia, plague, anthrax and other diseases that could be caused by lethal agents.
