TITLE:  DoD Instruction 3100.8, "The Technical Cooperation Program (TTCP)", 09/11/1973

SUMMARY:  This Instruction establishes procedures for participation by the Military Departments, Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, Defense Communications Agency, and Defense Nuclear Agency (referred to as "DoD Components") in the Technical Cooperation Program (TTCP). TTCP originated in agreements reached between the President of the United States and the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom in October 1957. This agreement was implemented in DoD by "Implementation of Declaration of Common Purpose," signed by the Deputy Secretary of Defense, March 26, 1958. Subsequent discussions included Canada as a participant and resulted in formation of a number of technical subgroups under a Non-Atomic Military Research and Development (NAMRAD) organization. This organization began operation in 1958 and was joined by Australia in 1965 and New Zealand in 1969.
