Chemical and Biological Warfare (CBW) Munitions Experience

PSG has performed thousands of hours of Research and Analysis on Chemical and Biological Warfare (CBW) munitions. This work involved considerable field work with live munitions as well as in-depth literature searches. PSG uses this expertise to produce the CABO databases, analytical reports, specialty briefings and training courses. The following summaries detail the scope of PSG's CB munitions experience.
