A Global Effort

The Irregular Warfare Technical Support Directorate seeks to increase the United States' ability to conduct irregular warfare and combat terrorism by maximizing interagency and international resources to satisfy common requirements. Purpose-built to leverage the financial resources, manpower, and brainpower of the interagency and international community, the IWTSD optimizes the experience, expertise, and resources of our foreign partners to identify gaps, to reduce duplication, and to provide irregular warfare capabilities, creating value that exceeds the sum of its financial inputs. By coordinating the needs of the interagency community with the U.S. armed forces and our partner nations, the IWTSD develops capabilities that satisfy multiple customers’ needs; reduce the cost of development; and increase the economies of scale.
