The Cooperative Threat Reduction (CTR) program was originally created to eliminate weapons of mass destruction (WMD) in the former Soviet Union (FSU), including nuclear, chemical and biological weapons; and their means of delivery (ICBMs, SLBMs, bombers and air-launched cruise missiles). Since its inception, the program has grown to provide general WMD nonproliferation and counter-proliferation assistance to partner nations worldwide.

Under an ongoing series of CTR contracts with DTRA (including the CTRIC-1, CTRIC-II and BTRIC IDIQs), AECOM has assisted in dismantling strategic weapons delivery systems; eliminated nuclear, chemical and biological weapons infrastructure; and helped enhance the capabilities of CTR Partner Nations’ land and maritime border security forces (including coast guard, navy, border guards and customs services, depending on the country and project) to surveil, detect and interdict attempted WMD trafficking across their borders. We are also one of only two contractors that also holds a Biological Threat Reduction Integrating Contract (BTRIC) with DTRA, in addition to our current CTRIC-II IDIQ.
