Deep Insights for Critical Decisions


Battelle is equipped to characterize, assess, model, anticipate and measure the full range of CBRNE threats 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. With expertise and resources that are among the most extensive available, Battelle can address virtually any threat-analysis challenge.

Our Services


We provide multi-source data analysis (e.g., open-source intelligence (OSINT)) to assess and characterize current and emerging threats.
Battelle offers capabilities across the entire CBRNE attack pathway. When a property of a hazard is not known, Battelle can perform experiments to obtain that data for better decisions.
Battelle offers a comprehensive suite of risk-based models and rapid-assessment data analysis tools to inform decision making for preparedness investments and response planning.
