DHS anticipates that the NBAF would focus biosafety level 3 agricultural (BSL-3Ag) research on African swine fever, classical swine fever, contagious bovine pleuropneumonia, foot and mouth disease (FMD), Japanese encephalitis, and Rift Valley fever (RVF), as well as BSL-4 research on Hendra and Nipah viruses. The NBAF would be approximately 500,000 to 520,000 square feet and consist of a primary laboratory building with a vaccine development laboratory adjacent or contiguous to it. The primary research building would contain the BSL-2, BSL-3E, BSL-3Ag, and BSL-4 laboratories with their associated support spaces. The other laboratory building would be a current good manufacturing practice (cGMP) laboratory adjacent to the primary research laboratory. The cGMP laboratory would be needed for vaccine candidate production. Other out buildings would be considered ancillary and necessary to support operation of the NBAF. Those buildings would include a guardhouse, transshipping facility, and central utility plant.
