The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) established the Chemical Security Analysis Center (CSAC) in 2006 to assess and identify vulnerabilities and respond to potential chemical threats and hazards to the homeland. Located on Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland, CSAC, which is overseen by the DHS Science and Technology Directorate, supports the Homeland Security Enterprise by providing a robust knowledge repository of chemical threat information, extensive subject matter expertise in science-based threat and risk analysis, and a 24/7 science- and technology-based reach back capability.
