Cooperative Monitoring Center, Sandia National Laboratory www.cmc.sandia.gov Sandia's history includes a long-time involvement with US treaty verification and monitoring programs, leadership in systems engineering for the U.S. nuclear weapons program, and leadership of US nuclear stewardship activities. In combination with complementary expertise at other DOE National Laboratories, these activities have resulted in a unique systems-level approach to problem solving and a broad spectrum of technology-based tools that can be applied to the challenges of cooperative monitoring.
Department of Energy Office of Defense Nuclear Nonproliferation www.nnsa.doe.gov/na%2D20 The mission of the Office of Defense Nuclear Nonproliferation (DNN) is to detect, prevent, and reverse the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, while mitigating the risks from nuclear operations.

Missile Defense Agency www.mda.mil/mdalink/html/mdalink.html MDA is responsible for managing, directing, and executing the Missile Defense Program. The program's objective is to: first, develop and deploy increasingly capable Theater Missile Defenses (TMD) to meet the existing missile threat to deployed U.S. and allied forces; second, as a hedge against the emergence of long-range ballistic missile threats, develop options to deploy a National Missile Defense (NMD) for the United States; and third, continue to support research on more advanced ballistic missile defense technologies to keep pace with the threat and improve the performance of theater and NMD systems.
Naval Treaty Implementation Program www.ntip.navy.mil The Naval Treaty Implementation Program is a centralized office that provides comprehensive treaty information and expert assistance to Navy and Marine Corps Commanding Officers, Program Managers, senior leadership, and decision-makers. NTIP serves as the Department of Navy's lead in all matters relating to implementation and compliance. The office is staffed with senior military and civilian personnel with expertise in the planning, organization, and execution of Navy and Marine Corps implementation, compliance, and verification activities.
Nonproliferation and Arms Control Technology Working Group www.npactwg.org The NPAC TWG was created by Presidential Directive as the mechanism to coordinate the research and development (R&D) response to these challenges while operating within constrained funding guidelines.
