IIT provides a wide range of Geospatial Intelligence support for requirements throughout the Intelligence Community, including support for Joint Commands such as the Joint Interagency Task Force – South and national organizations across DoD like NGA, DIA, the Army, and the Air Force. IIT’s capabilities in both Advanced Geospatial Intelligence (AGI) and Measurement and Signature Intelligence (MASINT) are exceptional. The preponderance of IIT’s current effort is focused specifically on AGI and MASINT support to Army activities ranging from Policy through Product Dissemination. IIT provides program and policy support at Headquarters Department of the Army, AGI and MASINT mission planning and management at the Army Intelligence and Security Command and on-site Requirements Management (RM), Processing, Exploitation and Dissemination (PED), and related training at the AGI/MASINT Regional Nodes (MRNs) supporting US Forces Korea, PACOM, SOUTHCOM, CENTCOM and SOCOM that are hosted at the Army Theater Intelligence Brigades. Additionally, IIT supports the development and presentation of Army specific AGI and MASINT training under INSCOM at Fort Belvoir.
IIT analysts provide full-spectrum Geospatial Intelligence support to the COCOMs, their ground components, and Joint Task Force(s) operating in their respective AORs. IIT personnel supporting the MRNs provide full-spectrum information integration for the Army’s All-Source Analysis element and Theater Ground Intelligence Centers of those warfighting commanders, receiving raw intelligence data from national and theater collection sources as appropriate and available. IIT analysts employ highly sophisticated processing algorithms to perform digital signal processing to extract and exploit unique phenomenology to facilitate reporting in response to stated information requirements from the supported commands/activities.
IIT analysts work directly with the supporting Joint Analysis Centers (JAC), the collection managers and other intelligence analysts within each theater and make recommendations to the collection managers. Absent validated requirements, IIT analysts employ tools such as the Requirements Management System (RMS), the Planning Tool for Resource Integration, Synchronization and Management (PRISM), and the Community On-Line Intelligence System for End-Users and Managers (COLISEUM) and other systems to research and identify potential opportunities develop, coordinate, and staff collection requirements, and exploit resulting data for reportable intelligence information. For MASINT specific collection and processing requirements, IIT analysts routinely generate both standing requirements and amplifications to standing requirements and ADHOC requirements within the MASINT Requirements System (MRS) on behalf of the supported commands. IIT analysts also staff the Army’s only consolidated Unattended Ground Sensor/Unattended MASINT Sensor (UGS/UMS) PED activity to provide direct, time-dominant support to forward deployed DoD organizations engaged in ongoing combat operations.
