The National Protection Center (NPC) is the US Army Natick Soldier Research, Development & Engineering Center's (NSRDEC) focal point for project management of inter-agency related Homeland Defense/Security efforts. The NPC was established to assess dual-use/technology transfer of RDTE in partnership with the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) and the National Aeronautic and Space Administration (NASA). Since its inception, the NPC mission has expanded to include sponsorship from the Department of Homeland Security and other government agencies. The NPC serves as the Project Manager for multi-agency driven Research, Development, Test and Evaluation (RDT&E) programs related to individual and integrated protective clothing/systems for Homeland Defense/Security operations.
