The DOD intelligence enterprise must look over the horizon to an ABI analytic environment where such ISR sources as streaming FMV, MTI, OPIR, SIGINT, MASINT, SAR, spectral, and thermal imagery are integrated at the post-processed and georeferenced entry point and compared with archived collected data in an automated fashion.
Under cover of joint operations with host governments, pursuing narco-terrorists, or interdicting drugs or arms traffickers, American air support will be secretly mapping terrain and acquiring GPS coordinates, as they air-drop MASINT sensors across the countryside.

The Air Force plays a key role in the MASINT arena through such aircraft and sensor capabilities as the RC-135 Cobra Ball.
Land and Joint Systems Division provides Joint, Army, Navy, Air Force and Government security agencies with the most advanced integrated C4ISR solutions to guarantee information dominance for both Homeland Defense and Out-Of-Area-Operations: Multi-source intelligence gathering, analysis and presentation (COMINT, ELINT, MASINT, IMINT, OSINT and HUMINT); Data fusion and intelligence dissemination tools; Operational information systems and CCIS, with targeting capabilities; and Offensive EW, information and telecommunications systems.
intelligence became increasingly proficient in the development and deployment of collection systems using advanced technology--SIGINT, IMINT, and MASINT.
Whether enabling targeted HUMINT Source Operations; CI surveillance; access to SIGINT collection using established networks; using building plans and construction archives to fill in missing GEOINT data; historic power usage for MASINT comparison, or indications and warning from OSINT on current actvities, intelligence operations in the cyber domain will be ted to successful military operations in megacites.
In early 2014, the Intelligence Committee was created to provide a forum of discussion and industrial base action associated with achieving persistent and actionable intelligence across the spectrums of interest that encompass MASINT programs and delivery systems, SIGINT and imagery (video) collection and dissemination, and Intel Fusion Centers operated in concert with National Authority direction, as well as statutory and human domain constraints.
MASINT Measurements and signature intelligence is "technically derived intelligence that detects, locates, tracks, identifies, and describes the unique characteristics of fixed and moving targets" (Lefebvre, 2004, p.
For example, a Global Hawk mission may have more IMINT targets than a single DGS can handle, especially if the DGS is already working Predator and/or U-2 missions with FMV, IMINT, and MASINT requirements.
UTAMS (Unattended Transient Acoustic MASINT Sensor) Mortar, Rocket, Explosion Locator
MASINT is technically derived intelligence that detects, locates, tracks, identifies and describes the characteristics of fixed and dynamic target objects and sources.
