Abstract:

Since 1986, TSWG has developed and transitioned technologies for combating terrorism in the broad context of national security by providing a cohesive and inclusive forum to define and fulfill user-based technical requirements spanning the Federal interagency community. By harnessing the creative spirit of U.S. and foreign industry, academic institutions, and government and private laboratories, TSWG through the activities of its functional subgroups nurtures a robust community for defining, agreeing to, and cooperatively developing technical solutions to the most pressing counterterrorism needs. This cooperative, interagency focus fosters a consensus-based approach to the rapid prototyping and development of combating terrorism devices, training tools, reference materials, software, and other equipment that has wide utility in the counterterrorism community at large.
