|Publication Date:||17 September 2008|
Consistent with DoD Directive 5134.8 (Reference (a)), implements policy and requirements according to section 1053 of Public Law 108-375 (2004) (Reference (b)), and established in DoD Directive 5000.01 (Reference (c)), DoD Instruction 5000.2 (Reference (d)), DoD Directive S-5210.81 (Reference (e)), CJCS Instruction 3170.01F (Reference (f)), DoD Directive 3020.40 (Reference (g)), and CJCS Manual 3170.01C (Reference (h)) in accordance with (IAW) the authority in DoD Directive 5134.01 (Reference (i)).
Assigns responsibilities for the execution of the DoD CBRN Survivability Policy.
Establishes processes for ensuring the survivability of CBRN mission-critical systems in a chemical, biological, and radiological (CBR) environment or a nuclear environment.
Describes how CBRN mission-critical systems will be identified, reviewed, and considered in the context of the Joint Capabilities Integration and Development System (JCIDS) (Reference (f)), the Defense Acquisition System (References (c) and (d)), the Missile Defense Agency System Engineering Plan (Reference (j)), or the National Security Space Acquisition Policy (Reference (k)), as appropriate.
Provides definitions of decontaminability, hardness, compatibility, and decontamination (see Glossary).
Aligns with the Defense Critical Infrastructure Program (DCIP) under Reference (g) to identify mission-critical systems.
Requires Military Departments and the Missile Defense Agency to report annually on CBRN survivability compliance, proposed corrective actions, and funding plans.
Establishes the CBRN Survivability Oversight Group (CSOG). The purpose of CSOG is to review and monitor the execution of the DoD CBRN Survivability Policy.
