Critical national security systems involve a huge number of society’s products, some entirely dependent on foreign imports or soon-to-be-extinct elements. All are built with the core chemicals and materials in the Environmental Genome database, the largest transparent database of CAS-identified chemicals in the world.
The EG maps items that enable the anticipation and discovery of the undisclosed production of chemical weapons, the unauthorized manufacture of advanced technology used for cyber theft, over dependence on foreign supply chains, and corporate patent violations. This is done by search and diagnosis of the telltale supply chains needed to produce these items.
The interconnected supply chains for all chemicals-in-commerce that we’re mapping are essential to understanding new trends, common and rare materials, and the future use of new chemicals. The Environmental Genome is a critical reference resource for how all of these chemicals are connected to build the products used in corporate, defense, and national security systems. It’s one of the most powerful tools that policymakers, corporate specialists, government agencies, and military and national security analysts can use to assess a nation’s security and competitiveness.
