About the CTTSO
CTTSO fields rapid combating terrorism solutions to meet continually evolving requirements defined by end users.
Multi-Agency — Multi-User
Working closely with over 100 Government agencies, State, and local government, law enforcement organizations, and national first responders, CTTSO leverages technical expertise, operational objectives, and interagency sponsor funding. This collective approach to resource and information sharing positions the CTTSO to gather front line requirements that service multiple users — a distinct advantage in the combating terrorism community.
The Combating Terrorism Technical Support Office (CTTSO) operates as a program office under the Assistant Secretary of Defense (ASD) for Special Operations and Low-Intensity Conflict (SO/LIC).
In 1999, the CTTSO was assigned program management oversight for the Technical Support Working Group (TSWG). Since then three additional program elements have been added that further expand the combating terrorism response capabilities of the CTTSO. These include the Explosive Ordnance Disposal/Low-Intensity Conflict (EOD/LIC) program and Irregular Warfare Support (IWS) program.
