Chemical Security Laboratory (CSL) Fact Sheet


To effectively support the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) mission, the DHS Science and Technology Directorate’s (S&T) Chemical Security Analysis Center (CSAC) must address complex and increasing chemical threats that require lab experimentation. DHS and its operational components rely on critical data, modeling, simulation, and guidance produced by CSAC to inform their planning and response operations. In 2022, CSAC stood up its Chemical Security Lab (CSL) as a new capability for experimental analysis of chemicals and hazardous substances. The facility is proximate to CSAC’s main building located in Edgewood at the Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland.
