Previous work under GWOT Solution Partners include close coordination with US TSWG (Technical Support Working Group), an interagency cooperation between DOD and DHS, and under executive direction of the US Department of State, which serves to fund emerging technologies for the warfighters and first responders. GWOT served in finding, forming, and funding those new technologies and services, both as a contractor and as a venture investor in the commercialization aspects of the program. Dr. Salazar (see bio below), while at the US Dept. of State serving in the Directorate for Counter-Terrorism, directly oversaw the department’s role in TSWG.
