Abstract:

The Defense Threat Reduction Agency DTRA was founded in 1998 to integrate and focus the capabilities of the Department of Defense DoD that address the weapons of mass destruction threat. To assist the Agency in its primary mission, the Advanced Systems and Concepts Office ASCO develops and maintains an evolving analytical vision of necessary and sufficient capabilities to protect United States and Allied forces and citizens from WMD attack. ASCO is also charged by DoD and by the U.S. Government generally to identify gaps in these capabilities and initiate programs to fill them. It also provides support to the Threat Reduction Advisory Committee TRAC, and its Panels, with timely, high quality research.
