The Security Cooperation Programs database contains information on approximately 100 U.S. government security cooperation programs (Titles 10, 22, 32, 50), including objective, authorities, geographical focus, resources, and point of contact information. The Access database is searchable in boolean style by PURPOSE (e.g., counterterrorism, border security, interoperability) and ACTIVITY (e.g., training, exercise, military-to-military, workshop) and will be useful for U.S. Air Force, Department of Defense, and U.S. government security cooperation planners and resource managers.

The Air Force and other Department of Defense entities conduct a host of security cooperation activities with partner air forces. Many programs are available for use when working with partner countries in a variety of contexts. However, there is currently no process for systematically tracking all these programs and activities. This report supplies Air Force planners with more-accessible information about resources for security cooperation, the rules that govern their use, and their application methods. It does so via an analytical construct created to illustrate how these resources can be employed in partner countries with varying degrees of capability, capacity, and willingness to work with the United States. The authors present an illustrative vignette to demonstrate how this construct may be used in a situation that requires a security cooperation plan. A set of program pages is also included to help security cooperation planners determine the key components of a security cooperation plan: the partner countries to be addressed by the plan, the programs to be used, the types of activities to be conducted through those programs, and program funding information.
