Excerpt

This monograph summarizes the findings of a six-month project on deterrence of terrorism, conducted jointly by RAND and the Institute for Defense Analyses (IDA). The project was initiated at the request of Dr. Anthony Tether, the Director of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). RAND and IDA worked closely throughout the research and together held two day-long seminar/discussion meetings with a senior advisory group. The two organizations, however, developed separate final reports. These were by no means independent, because of the extensive prior interchange, but they provided DARPA with separate “takes” on the issues. The material in this monograph was initially provided to DARPA as an annotated briefing in July 2002, along with accompanying background papers.

The project was sponsored by the Director of DARPA and conducted within the Acquisition and Technology Center of RAND's National Defense Research Institute (NDRI), a federally funded research and development center (FFRDC) for the Office of the Secretary of Defense, the Joint Staff, the defense agencies, and the unified commands. RAND provided research support funds to prepare this report.
