In 2011, the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) established a research unit at the Naval Postgraduate School to plan and conduct strategic and future-oriented research studies that support DTRA’s mission to counter the full spectrum of threats posed by weapons of mass destruction (WMD). The creation of the Project on Advanced Systems and Concepts for Countering WMD (PASCC) marked a transformation in the way DTRA sponsors research on emerging WMD challenges to be more efficient and effective in helping policy makers tackle tough issues.
PASCC is based in Monterey, California. At the nexus of the academic and military worlds, the project is housed at the Center on Contemporary Conflict (CCC) at the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS). The CCC serves as the program planning and implementation office, research center, and intellectual clearinghouse for PASCC.
