NDIA is accepting nominations for the two Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear (CBRN) Defense Division Awards for presentation at the 2022 CBRN Defense Conference and Exhibition on July 26 – 28, 2022 in Baltimore, MD.
The Honorary William C. Baugh CBRN Defense Excellence Award recognizes an individual who has made the greatest overall contribution to CBRN defense programs during their lifetime. Achievements for which this award will be considered may relate to any of the many components that make up this highly diverse, complex, vital commodity:
Research and development through the acquisition of capabilities needed by the warfighters and first responders;
Identification of ever-growing threats; or
Innovation in training for the current, or future fight and identifying readiness initiatives for business opportunities.
The Joseph D. Wienand NDIA CBRN Division STEM Excellence Award is in recognition of the greatest overall STEM achievement and/or efforts of an individual that most significantly impacted CBRN defense programs. This award recognizes the individual who, in the judgment of the panel, has demonstrated outstanding accomplishment through their own personal innovation and creativity in the areas of STEM. Example areas include but are not limited to:
Scientific, technological, engineering, or mathematical improvement; or
Enhancement of a CBRN defense-related product, system or process for the current year.
