IWTSD Industry Day

August 25, 2021

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.

The IWTSD Protection, Survivability, and Recovery and Expeditionary Force Protection subgroups will host a virtual industry day to discuss requirements published in the draft BAA. Feedback received from the discussion and exchange of information during this event will help IWTSD clarify and refine requirements for the final broad agency announcement. Draft requirements include:
1. Counter-Unmanned Aerial Systems;
2. Hard Target Support Vehicle-Carrier; and
3. Advanced Exothermic System.
