Elements of the military and first responders must be prepared to respond to weapons of mass effect that contain Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, and Explosive (CBRNE) materials
There is no substitute for live training; however, training for certain scenarios involving CBRNE threats is prohibitively expensive and dangerous
Physics-based virtual and augmented reality tools can supplement live training with high fidelity simulated scenarios that would otherwise be impossible to train for
Amentum is an Australian startup company founded in 2016 with a mission to improve global security by solving problems in counter proliferation, CBRNE, and nuclear security.
