The National Counterproliferation Center (NCPC) coordinates strategic planning with the Intelligence Community (IC) to enhance intelligence support to the United States (U.S.) efforts to stem proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and related delivery systems. It works with the IC to identify critical intelligence gaps or shortfalls in collection, analysis, or exploitation; and develop solutions to ameliorate or close these gaps. It also works with the IC to identify long-term proliferation threats and requirements and develop strategies to ensure the IC is positioned to address these threats and issues. NCPC reaches out to elements both inside and outside the IC and the U.S. Government (USG) to identify new methods or technologies that can enhance the capabilities of the IC to detect and defeat future proliferation threats.
