US Army Intelligence Support Activity (USAISA)



US Army Intelligence Support Activity (USAISA)

Intelligence Support Activity

The US Army Intelligence Support Activity (USAISA), frequently shortened to Intelligence Support Activity or ISA, and nicknamed The Activity) is a United States Army Special Operations unit originally subordinated to the US Army Intelligence and Security Command (INSCOM) but now part of the Joint Special Operations Command. It is tasked to collect actionable intelligence in advance of missions by other US special operations forces, especially Delta Force and SEAL Team Six/DEVGRU in counter-terrorist operations.

USAISA was the official name of the unit from 1981 to 1989 ; previously it was known as the Field Operations Group (FOG), created in September 1980. In 1989, the then USAISA commander sent a telex "terminating" the USAISA term and his Special Access Program GRANTOR SHADOW, but the unit continued under a series of different codenames which are changed every two years ; known codenames include CENTRA SPIKE, TORN VICTOR and GRAY FOX.

Defense Integrated Military Human Resources System (DIMHRS)



Defense Integrated Military Human Resources System (DIMHRS)

In preparation for the October 1, 2008, implementation of the Defense Integrated Military Human Resources System (DIMHRS), ALARACT 276/2007 Warning Order (WARNO) 08-01 was released November 29, 2007. This is the first in a series of official orders which will prepare the Army for implementation of the Congressionally-mandated personnel and military pay (per/pay) system.

The purpose of this WARNO is to alert the Army not only of the upcoming DIMHRS implementation, but to also provide guidance on training, a list of the affected human resource systems, business process changes, and initiatives to assist with the change to the revolutionary integrated per/pay system that will include all components of the Army. Familiarization with the Army DIMHRS training plan and change management program within each organization and installation are vital to the successful implementation of DIMHRS throughout the Army for this new Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP).

Coast Guard Intelligence (CGI)



Coast Guard Intelligence (CGI)

Coast Guard intelligence came into existence in 1915 by the assignment of a "Chief Intelligence Officer" in Headquarters.  Article 304 in the first set of Coast Guard Regulations provided for the establishment of a Chief Intelligence Officer who was to be attached to the Office of Assistant Commandant.  The Chief Intelligence Officer's duties were spelled out in Article 614 of those same Regulations: "securing of information which is essential to the Coast Guard in carrying out its duties; for the dissemination of this information to responsible officers, operating units of the Coast Guard, the Treasury Department and other collaborating agencies; and the maintenance of adequate files and records of law enforcement activities."

The office was relatively unknown until the enactment of the Prohibition Act when CGI grew to a cadre of 45 investigators.  CGI was extremely successful during prohibition and an Intelligence Division was established at Headquarters in 1930, followed by district intelligence offices in 1933.

During World War II, CGI was concerned with internal and domestic intelligence and counterintelligence.  It was charged with conducting all necessary investigation of Coast Guard personnel, and all applicants for positions therein, as well as investigations of applicants for merchant marine documentation.  Further, Coast Guard Intelligence was charged with conducting investigations in connection with the Coast Guard's regulatory functions, except Marine Inspection Regulations.

In 1948, CGI became the primary investigative arm of the service.  This mandate for an "investigative service" required that special agents conduct criminal, counterintelligence and personnel security investigations within the Coast Guard's area of responsibility.  The majority of these investigations involved those criminal offenses which are in violation of the UCMJ.

In 1996, in compliance with the President's Council on Integrity and Efficiency, the Coast Guard reorganized all criminal investigative and protective-services functions into the Coast Guard Investigative Service, or CGIS.  The centralization of CGIS meant reorganization from the top down.  Special agents now worked for a regional Special Agent-in-Charge (SAC).  The SACs were located in seven regional offices in Boston, Portsmouth, VA, Miami, Cleveland, New Orleans, Alameda, CA, and Seattle.  The SACs, in turn, reported to the director of CGIS at Headquarters who reported to the Chief of Operations and the vice commandant.  At this time, CGIS was comprised of 282 special agents and support personnel.

Armed Forces Medical Intelligence Center



Armed Forces Medical Intelligence Center

Mission

AFMIC's mission, always critical to protecting the health of deployed forces, has grown even more important recently with support to Operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom and the global war on terrorism. At the same time, the center is increasing its use of new technologies to transform its delivery of timely, forward-leaning, customer-focused medical intelligence.

As part of the DIA, this tri-service organization produces finished, all-source medical intelligence assessments, forecasts and databases on foreign military and civilian health care capabilities and trends, worldwide infectious disease risks, global environmental health risks, and militarily significant life science issues, to include biotechnology and nuclear, biological and chemical medical defense advancements.

AFMIC is the only organization in the world with this comprehensive medical intelligence mission. As such, it has a diverse customer base, from operational and tactical commanders, preventive medicine personnel, and medical planners and researchers to the policymakers in the DoD, the White House staff and other federal agencies.

The current (2007) director is [United States Air Force] Colonel Anthony Rizzo
