If you watch the news, it’s hard to ignore the ever-changing threats of Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, and Explosives (CBRNE) warfare in the United States, DoD industry, and beyond.

The element of surprise, unseen agents, and lethal devices causes the population to be extremely vulnerable against the constantly evolving nature of CBRNE threats and violent events. Now more than ever, maintaining a secure position in countering these threats is of the highest priority for all emergency response personnel, ranging from first responders (law enforcement, firefighters, police, medical, and even civilian volunteers) to high-ranking government officials.

Lack of proper hazards containment and rescue training in the event of a CBRNE attack renders emergency personnel insufficient in safeguarding civilians, as well as themselves. ADS, Inc. works diligently to identify and mitigate these risks by maintaining a leading position at the forefront of sourcing and supplying emerging CBRNE defense products, training, and technologies.

ADS contributes in the continuous development of new products and technologies by partnering with industry-leading manufacturers and suppliers of CBRNE defense equipment and training services. As the prime vendor on multiple CBRNE IDIQ contracts, ADS has experience in providing Commercial Off The Shelf (COTS) products and support solutions for the U.S. Department of Defense and the Department of Homeland Security.

ADS’ experience and immersion in growing CBRNE threat awareness and preparedness through its vast operational equipment and training offerings remains unparalleled in the defense industry. Our team plans to continue to grow its capabilities to meet the ever-evolving threats by providing increased support to our existing CBRNE program-level customers and staying abreast rapidly evolving defense requirements.

Join our expanding Special Mission Solutions team and be apart of a company that works proactively to combat the ever-changing threats of Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, and Explosives warfare, with confidence. We’re currently hiring for a CBRNE Business Development Manager in the Aberdeen, Maryland/D.C. Metro area.
