The Irregular Warfare Technology Support Directorate (formerly Combating Terrorism Technical Support Office) identifies and develops capabilities for DoD to conduct Irregular Warfare against all adversaries, including Great Power competitors and non-state actors, and to deliver those 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.
IWTSD’s Industry Week, March 8-12, 2021 is an opportunity for industry, academia, and 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 2022 research and development portfolio.
This event is the only opportunity for participants to virtually interact with IWTSD program staff about FY 2022 requirements. Feedback received from the discussion and exchange of information during this event will help IWTSD clarify and refine requirements for the final broad agency announcements.
