High-resolution, fast-running hazard prediction models are required to enhance Defence’s capability to accurately characterise contaminated hazard areas in urban environments. DMTC is working at the request of Defence Science & Technology Group to manage a collaborative program of work to understand the transport and dispersion of chemical, biological, and radiological (CBR) material in outdoor urban and indoor environment, and to collaboratively develop hazard prediction models.


DMTC is releasing a Request for Information (RFI) to better understand the capabilities and prospective partnering potential of Australian industrial and academic organisations to collaborate in the development and enhancement of Defence relevant capabilities in the Chemical, Biological or Radiological (CBR) Modelling and Simulation domain.

The specific area of interest covered by this RFI is:

“Development of fast-running, high resolution dispersion models for predicting CBR dispersion in complex urban and indoor environments”

Responses to this Request for Information (RFI) will be reviewed by the CBR Modelling and Simulation Technical Advisory Group, including representatives from Defence Science & Technology Group. If your area of expertise, research or technology is deemed to have merit in contributing to the aims of this program, DMTC may seek further information, including detailed proposals to conduct funded project work in this area. Note: Having your RFI response reviewed by the Technical Advisory Group is NOT a guarantee that you will be granted funding.

Submissions are requested by no later than close of business, 15 March 2021.
