National Counterproliferation Center
Definition/Scope: The National Counterproliferation Center (NCPC) is the primary organization within the U.S. Intelligence Community charged with combating the spread of weapons of mass destruction and their delivery systems. NCPC works with the Intelligence Community to identify critical intelligence gaps in counterproliferation collection or analysis and then develops solutions to help close those gaps. Through its Innovation Fund, NCPC also works to find and fund new technologies to help combat proliferation. Additionally, NCPC works to identify “over the horizon” proliferation concerns and creates strategies to ensure that the IC is well-positioned to address them.
