The Air National Guard’s Conflict 21 Center for Terrorism Studies, located at Maxwell Air Force Base in Alabama, develops novel ideas for research aimed at stopping terrorists and cyberterrorists from infiltrating U.S. jurisdictions—the War Against Terror—and to pull together research findings from the U.S. Air Force and the Department of Defense regarding terrorist activities and potential attacks on Critical Infrastructures.
Accordingly, Conflict 21 is interested in such topics as the institutional changes required to meet the challenges of U.S. Homeland Security, effective ways of dealing with the growth of and usage of Weapons of Mass Destruction, and preventative measures to thwart future crisis scenarios rooted in terrorism—including a cyber Apocalypse.
