The US Department of Defense’s Combating Terrorism Technical Support Office (CTTSO), along with the Technical Support Working Group (TSWG), are looking for concepts for innovative research and development projects from Australian defence industry.

The US DoD are urging current and newcomer Australian defence or homeland security-based businesses to apply for the commercial opportunities set for the 2018 financial year.

CTSSO and TSWG identify, prioritise and co-ordinate interagency and international research and development (R&D) requirements for combating terrorism.

The TSWG rapidly develops technologies and equipment to meet the high-priority needs of the combating terrorism community, and addresses joint international operational requirements through co-operative R&D with major allies.

The two groups released their 2018 Draft Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) in November 2016, and are expected to release a formal version this month.

Australian businesses interested in participating in phase 1 are being asked to submit a relevant quad chart responding to the outlined requirements in the BAA (click here to see the draft BAA).

To discuss opportunities, the Industry Engagement Team (Washington) can be contacted at:
