Readiness Through Awareness

Our Mission: To ensure the continued protection of Department of Defense programs, operations, and activities by providing security preparedness education, assistance, and advice concerning the wide variety of operational activities associated with arms control implementation.


DTIRP provides arms control implementation support services to Department of Defense (DoD) and defense contractor facilities subject to on-site inspections and observation overflights. DTIRP services are customized to meet the unique arms control security needs of individual sites and facilities. These services include training, analyses, vulnerability assessments, exercises, and inspection security support. DTIRP also conducts and support seminars and exhibits.

DTIRP provides expert services with a maximum of efficiency and economy by drawing from the arms control and security community throughout DoD and other U.S. government agencies. The ultimate objective of all DTIRP support services is to enable facilities to demonstrate treaty compliance while also protecting national security, proprietary, and other sensitive information from being compromised or inadvertently disclosed during on-site inspection activities and other arms control implementation activities potentially impacting facility operations.
