Countering Weapons of Mass Destruction

Countering weapons of mass destruction (CWMD) requires multidisciplinary expertise and sophisticated tools. LMI delivers both, helping customers adopt the latest capabilities and methodologies to advance the CWMD and chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear (CBRN) defense missions.

CWMD is a critical national and global security challenge requiring multidisciplinary expertise, sophisticated tools, and strategic coordination of the defense, intelligence, and homeland security communities.

LMI has advised these communities since our inception. We understand how our customers operate and how to bring innovative technologies and approaches to bear that advance the CWMD and chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear (CBRN) defense missions. Our real-time technical, programmatic, and operational support helps customers respond to a dynamic threat landscape and protect our nation, deployed forces, allies, and interests from devastating attacks.
