The CTTSO’s Mission

The CTTSO identifies and develops capabilities to combat terrorism and irregular adversaries and to deliver these capabilities to DoD components and interagency partners through rapid research and development, advanced studies and technical innovation, and provision of support to U.S. military operations.


  • APBI 2015 registration is now open.
  • As violent events initiated by a "trusted insider" continue to take center stage in the media, at-risk organizations in local communities and worldwide are spending more and more capital for better ways to identify and address pre-event indicators. CTTSO's Irregular Warfare and Evolving Threats program desires a non-invasive approach that will accurately predict when an individual is primed to commit a hostile act. Additional details on the challenge and prize can be found in the CTTSO Challenge Pavilion.
  • The Training Technology Development subgroup is seeking a mobile app that facilitates the collection and creation of content that can be easily organized, accessed, and shared in innovative ways on a smartphone and/or tablet to improve mission critical performance.  Additional details on the challenge and prize can be found in the CTTSO Challenge Pavilion.
