The Combating Terrorism Technical Support Office (CTTSO) operates as a program office under the Assistant Secretary of Defense (ASD) for Special Operations and Low-Intensity Conflict (SO/LIC).
Working closely with more than 100 government agencies, state, and local government, law enforcement organizations, and national first responders, the CTTSO leverages technical expertise, operational objectives, and interagency sponsor funding. This multi-agency, multi-user approach to resource and information sharing positions the CTTSO to gather front line requirements that service multiple users—a distinct advantage in the combating terrorism community.
