Our Capabilities

Center for Threat Management research programs encompass a broad spectrum of threats to commerce, critical infrastructure, and national security. In support of its mission to implement solutions to these threats, CTM maintains several unique capabilities that allow it to satisfy the research priorities and objectives of its sponsors and operational partners.

Aerial Missions Unit

The AMU provides the architecture, resources, and subject matter expertise to conduct operational research on the technologies, applications, and policies associated with small unmanned aircraft systems (UAS).

Vulnerability Assessment

Through its Vulnerability Assessment programs, CTM subject matter experts assist organizational stakeholders in a comprehensive assessment of the threat environment and capabilities available to prevent, prepare for, respond to, and recover from the effects of major incidents.

Cyber Threat Awareness and Consequence Management

CTM draws upon extensive subject matter expertise in threat awareness and consequence management to assist in implementing collaborative solutions to the growing cyber threat.

Port and Maritime Security

CTM programs in Port and Maritime Security leverage two decades of operational research for the U.S. Navy to examine the unique challenges presented to maintaining domain awareness, protecting critical waterside and offshore facilities, and conducting specialized operations in the maritime environment.

Technology Experimentation and Implementation

Through its Technology Experimentation and Implementation programs, CTM builds upon a legacy of systems test and evaluation for the U.S. Navy. These programs are designed to provide access to developing and transitional technologies through scenario-based field experiments and operational evaluations activities.
