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.

CTTSO’s Industry Day is an opportunity for industry, academia, government labs -- any entity that can conduct business with the U.S. Government and has an interest in submitting bids -- to discuss draft requirements that will form our FY 2021 research and development portfolio.

This event is the only opportunity for participants to have face-to-face discussions with CTTSO about FY 2021 requirements. Feedback received from the discussion and exchange of information during this event will help CTTSO clarify and refine requirements for the final broad agency announcements that will be released in March 2020.


On or about February 15th - Our new BIDS (BAA Information Delivery System) site will be active. The web address is not changing, but you will need to re-register in the system at that time. Access to your previous submissions (using your old account) will be available via a link on the new site.

Mid-March 2020 - Final BAAs Released


Come prepared. Read the draft BAAs before coming to Industry Day. It is the sole reason CTTSO releases drafts.

Send the right people. Technical people who understand the requirements and can ask constructive questions.

No solicitation. This is an event to solely discuss the requirements as presented in the draft BAAs. Please do not bring an iPad to show what your company can offer. Wait until the final BAAs is released and submit your solution in BIDS!
