The Technical Cooperation Program

The TCCP logo

The Technical Cooperation Program (TTCP) is a collaborative five-nation forum between UK, USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. 

TTCP is DSTG's primary multilateral program of international science and technology (S&T) collaboration and Australia’s most important link into the Defence-related laboratories of our partner nations.

It provides a forum for the sharing of ideas and the harmonisation of programs. This gives member nations the potential to extend their research and development (R&D) capabilities at minimal cost, to avoid duplication and to improve interoperability.

TTCP involves some 1,000 defence scientists from the member countries. DSTG contributes to about 60 specialist areas of technology.
