About the SAN
The objective of the SAN (Security Assistance Network) is to enhance the opportunity for access by Unified Commands and Security Assistance Organizations (SAOs), as well as CONUS-based
security assistance activities, to existing security assistance management information systems and to provide users labor-saving ADP administrative
tools. The Director of DSCA established the following goals: (1) tie existing automated systems and users together, (2) provide simplified access
procedures to a range of automated systems and (3) interface automated systems through existing or expanded telecommunications networks, providing
automated communication and data exchange support. The present Security Assistance Network is a modern Internet based wide area network that links the
world-wide Security Assistance Offices with their Unified Command headquarters and CONUS based military service activities. The SAN Web system is
managed by DISCS for the Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA).
