Who We Are

The National Counterproliferation Center (NCPC) was founded on November 21, 2005 in the Office of the Director of National Intelligence to help the United States counter the threats caused by the proliferation of chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear weapons.

NCPC 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.

In conjunction with the policy community, NCPC also helps to identify long-term proliferation threats and requirements, and develops strategies to ensure that the Intelligence Community is positioned to address these over-the-horizon threats.

To do this, NCPC depends not only on the 16 agencies of the Intelligence Community, but also partners across the US Government, in addition to experts in the private sector.
