Part I: Explain the roles of HSINT in countering CBRNE threats within the homeland.
The Department of Homeland Security work diligently to prevent terrorist and other threat actors, from utilizing weapons of mass destruction to harm the nations people and our critical infrastructures. Some of HSINT`s roles are to utilize intelligence from collaborative mechanisms to review and provide guidance for bioterrorism risk assessment; within this role HSINT collaborates with the National Biodefense Analysis and Countermeasures Center (NBACC) assessing intelligence to provide appropriate preparedness planning, response, emergency threat characterization and bio forensic analysis. This is the first national laboratory created by DHS who`s capabilities drastically improved after the Anthrax attacks of 2001 (DHS, n.d).
Conversely, HSINT through the Public Health Emergency Medical Countermeasures Enterprise seeks to utilize intelligence to enhance CBRN and Emerging Infectious Diseases (EID) preparedness from a medical countermeasure perspective; as well aid in the technical Support Working Groups ( TSWG) interagency research and development program for the standardization of equipment; HSINT analyzes biological science topics and biodefense related information to assist with their efforts to better understand biological threats in offering integrated tools indexing information; curtailing of intelligence redundancy collaboration and coordination of intelligence via the National Interagency Biodefense Campus in Maryland; and finally, support cutting edge research to revolutionize technologies, capabilities, threat and risk assessments for the Homeland Enterprise via the Science and Technology Directorate research projects (Currie, 2019).
