In driving the modernization of the Army’s Intelligence Corps, LTG Mary Legere, the Army’s Senior Intelligence Officer, has focused on ensuring the Army invests and develops the multi-discipline intelligence capabilities required to support Army forces around the globe regardless of the threat environment.
A critical component of this effort is focused on how Army Intelligence gains, sustains, updates and manages the increasing volume of intelligence data available from a vast array of dynamic sensors as well as from the stores of the greater intelligence community.
As Legere explained at a recent conference with industry and intelligence professionals, “The Army’s Distributed Ground Station is the focal point of this effort, as it provides the Army with the global platform we require to allow our Soldiers at every echelon the ability to gain access to the information available from organic collectors as well Intelligence Community Partners, and provides the analytics and processing power they need to process, fuse, analyze and disseminate intelligence to mission command and Army weapons systems”.
Now globally deployed across the Army and supporting operations in seven geographic theaters, Legere noted that the Army is already looking ahead, working with industry and the intelligence community to adapt Army DCGS-A’s to fully leverage the United States Intelligence Community’s Information Technology Enterprise, incorporating new capabilities while also enhancing critical connections to mission command systems.
In her tenure as Army G2, Legere has driven a number of critical experiments with industry, research and development laboratories and joint partners to explore commercial solutions to present multi-disciplined data into useable, consumable, timely and intuitive ways to better support Army commanders around the globe.
Legere is optimistic the increased collaboration will provide the solutions the Army requires, not only to migrate its DCGS-A enterprise to the IC ITE environment, but to set the stage for the Army’s Common Command Post Environment in the near future.
