The Team Defence Information Task Force sponsors and facilitates a number of Working Groups, each focused on a specific aspect of collaborative information sharing. Their purpose is to identify and progress issues – and to develop advice and guidance for the benefit of Team Defence. Representation includes UK Ministry of Defence (and other Government Departments where appropriate) as well as industry. Participation is open to representatives from TD-Info member organisations and others by invitation.
