August 24, 2022

Harford County leaders gathered at Aberdeen Proving Ground midday Monday to survey the military base at its first Immersion Day since the pandemic began. The “windshield tour” of the post included Edgewood Area stops at the Medical Research Institute for Chemical Defense and the Chemical Biological Center; a tech expo display by the Army’s Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Cyber, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance Center, which is headquartered at Aberdeen; a Science of Sound demo at the Aberdeen Test Center; a visit to the 20th CBRNE Command, the Army’s Chemical, Biological, Nuclear, Radiological, Explosives headquarters, also based at APG, to hear how the command would respond to a nuclear incident; and a visit to the range where the visitors were able to try their hand at firing some of the weapons being tested there.
