CCC is the principal research wing of NPS National Security Affairs
SponsorsPASCC Collaboration

Faculty principal investigators work closely with project sponsors to deliver forward-looking, research-based policy recommendations on strategic issues. Research at CCC is sponsored by a variety of federal agencies, including but not limited to the following: 


The CCC houses the Project on Advanced Systems and Concepts for Countering WMD (PASCC). Founded in May 2011 with support from the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA), PASCC is an intramural and extramural project focusing on innovative and future-oriented research activities and related study. 

One of PASCC’s primary objectives is to broaden the reach of its sponsored research. PASCC supports research activities that benefit the public through analysis and engagement to reduce and counter the threats posed by WMD/WME. PASCC seeks to cultivate interconnected, mutually supportive national and international strategic research-community partnerships across domains. A second goal is to bring scientific, technical, and social science faculty/experts together and to look well into the future and help understand and anticipate WMD/WME capabilities. PASCC aims to address WMD/WME existent and emerging capabilities and counter those future threats and challenges.
PASCC is guided by a Senior Steering Group (SSG) that includes U.S. Government and Naval Postgraduate School representatives and leaders.  The SSG meets biannually to assist the PASCC Director in establishing annual and long-range planning.
