WASHINGTON - The Army antiterrorism awareness theme for the third quarter of fiscal year 2019 is the Individual Terrorism Awareness Course. (INTAC) The audience for this theme includes antiterrorism officers, antiterrorism coordinators and leaders responsible for antiterrorism plans/programs.

The purpose of antiterrorism awareness themes, is to focus efforts and instill Army-wide heightened awareness and vigilance to prevent attacks and protect the Army community and critical resources from acts of terrorism. Antiterrorism community awareness initiatives support sustained vigilance in our efforts to prevent and detect terrorist activities across all operations. This quarter's theme focuses on promoting the capabilities of the INTAC.

Terrorism is an enduring, persistent, worldwide threat to the Army and our nation. The Army must be capable of identifying, deterring, preventing, and defending against the full range of terrorist tactics, techniques, and procedures. Terrorist tactics evolve as adversaries seek to negate the Army's strengths while exploiting identified weaknesses.

The Individual Terrorism Course (INTAC) offers six days of training for individuals deploying overseas to a medium or high threat country. Training is conducted in Virginia, at a full-service tactical training facility that includes driving courses, firing ranges, defensive tactics training area, and a campus with multiple classrooms. INTAC is specifically designed to prepare individuals and groups to recognize, avoid, and mitigate risk and react to threats in a complex and hostile environment. Training instils heightened vigilance and situational awareness.
