MCIA is a recognized "Center of Excellence" of Expeditionary Intelligence and provides the Marine Operating Forces with intelligence in support of operational and pre-deployment planning, training and exercises. MCIA is fully integrated into the Defense Intelligence Analysis Program (DIAP). Through this program, MCIA can be tasked to provide expeditionary warfare intelligence to support any national, theater, or operational command in the US Armed Forces. The unique and tailored analysis and production done by MCIA and its reserve production elements support not only the Marine Corps, but also the national decision-maker, theater commander, and operational war fighter.
MCIA supports the Geographically Linked Information Dissemination Environment (GLIDE) to disseminate intelligence imagery products to operating forces and the larger intelligence community. "The use of EarthWhere in conjunction with GLIDE will provide MCIA with a way to quickly locate, provision and disseminate vital imagery intelligence products to decision-makers and planners," said Mark Hardy, vice president and general manager of the SANZ Geospatial Solutions Group.
MCIA joins the growing list of Department of Defense agencies that are improving operations by implementing EarthWhere and geospatial data management services from SANZ.
