General Description

Military information, particularly classified information about enemies or potential enemies, is called "intelligence." Intelligence specialists analyze intelligence data. We break down information to determine its usefulness in military planning. From this intelligence data, we prepare materials that describe in detail the features of strategic and tactical areas all over the world.


What We Do

  • analyze intelligence information
  • identify and produce intelligence from raw information
  • assemble and analyze multi-source operational intelligence
  • prepare and present intelligence briefings
  • prepare planning materials for photographic reconnaissance missions, analyze the results, prepare reports
  • prepare graphics, overlays and photo/map composites
  • plot imagery data using maps and charts
  • provide input to and receive data from computerized intelligence systems ashore and afloat
  • maintain intelligence databases, libraries and files


Working Environment

Intelligence specialists perform most of duties in an office or watch environment. We usually work closely with others, doing mostly analytical work, but must have the capability to work without supervision and to support the intelligence mission of the Navy on land, undersea, at sea and in the air. We serve on board ships, aircraft squadrons and various intelligence production centers located in the United States and overseas.
