National Counterproliferation Center - What We Do

National Counterproliferation Center

What We Do

National Counterproliferation Center SealNCPC works with the Intelligence Community to identify critical holes in our WMD knowledge – resulting from shortfalls in collection, analysis or exploitation - and then develop solutions to reduce or close these gaps. Counterproliferation efforts aim to eliminate or reduce the threats caused by the development and spread of WMD. To do this, the U.S. Government focuses on five objectives: discourage interest by states, terrorists, or armed groups from acquiring, developing or mobilizing resources for WMD purposes; prevent or obstruct state, terrorist, or other efforts to acquire WMD capabilities, or efforts by suppliers to provide such capabilities; roll back or eliminate WMD programs of concern; deter weapons use by those possessing nuclear, radiological, biological, and chemical weapons and their means of delivery; and mitigate the consequences of any use of WMD against the United States or its allies.
