The U.S. Army’s Aberdeen Proving Ground (APG) will host the fourth annual Advanced Planning Briefing to Industry on November 3-5, 2015.
The goal of the event is to provide the industrial base with networking opportunities and information on upcoming and long term potential contracting opportunities for mission areas that focus on: Chemical/Biological Defense (CBD); Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR); Research and Development (R&D); and APG Garrison Services.
The APBI will discuss potential contracting opportunities that are closely aligned with the technology roadmaps of each respective organization, specifically focusing on Fiscal Years 2016 and 2017 opportunities.
The CBD portion of the APBI will take place on Nov. 5, with presentations from the following organizations:
- Program Executive Office for Chemical and Biological Defense (JPEO CBD)
- Edgewood Chemical Biological Center
- Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) – Joint Science and Technology Office
- US Army Medical Research Institute for Chemical Defense (USAMRICD)

The government announcement states that the APBI is subject to conference approval and funding and only constitutes a ‘Save-the-Date’ at this time.
The APBI will be unclassified and open to all interested contractors, large and small businesses, and academia as well as other government stakeholders. Slides from the APBI will be made available following the event.
