The Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) Chemical and Biological Technologies section is seeking information from respondents who possess the capability to address modeling and simulation of contact hazard and long-term environmental fate of chemical agents.
Focus areas of this effort include:
- Increased fidelity of the current Droplet Reaction and Evaporation of Agents Model (DREAM V2 model) by development and demonstration of a complete set of models for characterizing chemical agent fate of both traditional and non-traditional chemical warfare agents, including long term environmental response and evaporative/contact hazards.
- Incorporation of additional non-traditional agent (NTA) data into the Defense Technology Objective (DTO) Environmental Fate of Agents database.
- Completion of verification and validation of the DREAM V2 model for droplet contact angle and spread against experimental data for two high priority NTAs to demonstrate that the framework developed to model agent fate of traditional agents will also work for non-traditional agents.
- Full integration of the DREAM V2 module into the Joint Effects Model S&T Prototype/Hazard Prediction and Assessment Capability (JSTP/HPAC) and the Joint Effects Model (JEM), including developing interfaces such that DREAM V2 is compliant with the Common CBRN Modeling Interface (CCMI).
Respondents are requested to submit capability statements which include a description of their ability to maintain labor categories possessing minimum SECRET-level security clearances to support a program of this nature.
Further details are available via Solicitation Number: RFIJ9CBIAF. The response deadline is April 1, 2015.
