In addition, IIT offers Community Infrastructure Management, Information Systems Support, Intelligence Support to Information Systems, and Technical Support Services.

Intelligence Analysis
IIT provides intelligence analysis for a wide range of operations and security functions, including homeland security, critical infrastructure protection, risk reduction, border security operations, asymmetric warfare activities, combatant commanders, and national intelligence agencies.

Intelligence Fusion Training
IIT delivers tailored training to develop intelligence analysts supporting corporate, state, and local fusion centers. This training provides overviews of key processes and functions that must be incorporated for effective collection, analysis, and production. It encompasses law enforcement intelligence and national intelligence fusion, including legal restrictions and limitations, privacy and personnel security requirements, and key task performance across the intelligence cycle. It provides the basic foundation for analysts developing open source and all source intelligence.

Geospatial Intelligence (GEOINT)
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.

Signals Intelligence (SIGINT)
IIT provides intelligence, security, and technical support to future organizational and operational actions impacting Army Signals Intelligence (SIGINT) capabilities. Our personnel support the Army Cryptologic Operations (ACO) staff located at the National Security Agency; Fort Meade, MD, and the TROJAN Management Office under the auspices of the INSCOM Deputy Chief of Staff; Operations/G3; and INSCOM Major Subordinate Commands (MSC) in ongoing programs to realign missions, personnel, systems, and other resources to ensure support to the Army, Ground Component Commanders, and the Intelligence Community at large.
IIT routinely participates in multi-service and multi-agency working groups developing the SIGINT and cryptologic plans for the future of national, theater, and tactical intelligence. This includes support to the development of the Army Cryptologic Architecture (ACA) and ensuring service and ground component requirements and equities are captured within the overarching Unified Cryptologic Architecture (UCA). IIT provides support in planning for the implementation of Project FOUNDRY and initiatives to enhance the technical skills and operational capabilities of the tactical force. Additionally, our personnel assist Army’s portion of the cryptologic programs. IIT tracks changes and evaluates impacts from changes in personnel and programs funded under a variety of programs (CCP, DCP, IISP, as well as other GDIP, NFIP and TIARA), including recent implementation/migration to the Military and National Intelligence Programs (MIP-NIP).
In support of on-going TROJAN Management Office Operations, IIT provides analytical and technical personnel to assist in the planning and implementation of TROJAN systems that have evolved from training systems to critical elements in the Army’s Intelligence Strategy. IIT supports the ARMY/INSCOM TROJAN Management Office through systems and operational concept development and review; system security/accreditation; and, coordination and planning of deployments, upgrades and new system fielding.

Staff Augmentation
As a compliment to all of its services, IIT provides its clients with highly qualified, multi-disciplined staff support, to include operational deployment with military forces. IIT personnel have extensive problem solving and intelligence experience. Most with military/government intelligence and special operations backgrounds, which include real world Information Warfare and Information Operations experience.

Target Analysis
The process of detecting, selecting, and prioritizing targets in concert with IO underscores the importance of integrating and coordinating the supported command’s lethal and non-lethal attacks. IO and Targeting synchronization requires information to enable the destruction, denial, or degradation of vital Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) links and nodes at the right time and place; thus, detailed knowledge of adversary C4ISR resources is essential.IIT has extensive experience supporting the targeting process. IIT professionals provide assistance integrating IO into the high-priority target list (HPTL) and targeting objectives, identifying and nominating IO-related targets, and interpreting IO-related battle damage and/or combat assessments.

AGI & MASINT Reporting and Dissemination Service (AMRDS)
