Risk-Management & Decision Support

Addressing any threat-analysis challenge with the right tools and processes.

Threat Assessment

Battelle is equipped to characterize, assess, model, predict and measure the full range of CBRNE threats. That is critical to successful decision-making for clients in intelligence, defense and homeland security. In many cases, we perform these tasks on behalf of our clients in our own leading-edge facilities. In others, we provide them with the tools needed to perform these tasks internally. 


Understanding and accurately assessing a threat is life or death business. Those on the front lines must be able to make the best decisions possible, and those decisions can be made much easier with accurate, clear data. No matter what your specific requirements may be, Battelle is uniquely positioned to meet them.
