Measurement and Signature Intelligence (MASINT) is an intelligence Discipline that employs abroad range of scientific developments to gather foreign intelligence. MASINT oversight and direction is provided by and implemented for the community by the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) Directorate for MASINT and Technical Collections (DIA/DT). The National Consortium for MASINT Research (NCMR) as the focal point for MASINT innovation provides cutting-edge MASINT research for the Intelligence Community (IC). A formal consortium of laboratories, academia, and industry forms the core of the advanced MASINT Research and Development (R&D) program and creates a dynamic forum for diverse research partners to the benefit of MASINT. Through the NCMR, DIA investments supported by Congress converge around the National Intelligence Priority Framework, sustaining the intellectual capital needed to continue technical advances in the IC.
