The US Army has opened its refurbished Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear (CBRN) School and Chemical Defense Training Facility (CDTF) at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri Ozarks.

The CDTF is now fully operational after being closed for six months and is said to be the only facility of its kind within the US Department of Defense.

Nearly 5,000 Army, Air Force, Marine Corps, Navy, Coast Guard, and allied nation military personnel are expected to be trained at the facility next year.

“This state-of-the-art facility will ensure our soldiers, marines, sailors, and airmen have the critical skills and understanding they need.”

The enhancements for CDTF included modifications that transformed the gray masonry walls and institutional feel with 3D graphics and lighting, sound, and furnishings.

JPEO-CBRND Joint Program executive officer Douglas Bryce, who managed the initiative, said: “JPEO-CBRND’s involvement in the CDTF is an investment in our warfighters and those of our international allies.

“This state-of-the-art facility and the capabilities it houses will ensure our soldiers, marines, sailors, and airmen have the critical skills and understanding they need to fight and win in a CBRN environment.”

In partnership with the US Army Combat Capabilities Development Command Chemical Biological Center (CCDC CBC), the JPEO-CBRND and CBRN School created imagery for the updated CDTF.

CCDC CBC’s Interactive Software and Visual Media branch of the Advanced Design and Manufacturing Business Unit rendered new high-resolution 3D wall graphics for the facility.

Facility upgrades were designed and executed by MRIGlobal in collaboration with HHI Corporation.

Maneuver Support Center of Excellence developed revised training materials and procedures to leverage the expanded mission sets that are now available within the facility.
