The characteristics of effective intelligence – timely, relevant, accurate, predictive, and tailored are the cornerstones of MEIS. Critical thinking and communication skills are as important as understanding the intelligence cycle. These skills are emphasized with MEIS personnel, regardless of the mission they support.
MEIS delivers operational solutions for high-consequence missions. Culturally immersed analysts, many of which are native to the geographic locations where they are stationed, are often deployed to navigate missions as needed. Our intelligence, language, cultural, and regional expertise allows us to customize services to specific customer objectives and areas of operation.
ISR Mission Support
Large System Integration
A critical MEIS capability is integrating multiple data sources into a system of systems. By providing professional services that afford our clients a deep functional knowledge base of tactical receive terminals, UHF, and Network Messaging. Coupled with specialized expertise in our clients’ mission, MEIS continues to forge its reputation as a preeminent large system integrator.
MEIS has assembled a world-class team of engineers proficient in the latest engineering tools, languages, and approaches. We have developed the Common Interactive Broadcast (CIB) Planning Tool (CIB-PT), which provides Combatant Command (CCMD) planners the capability to configure channel resources for more efficient and effective CIB services. These tools are critical to the timely dissemination to the tactical user of time-sensitive information, including targeting, threat warning, and threat avoidance.
Providing systems that rapidly filter tactical and strategic data and transmit integrated time-sensitive information to targeted users is a fundamental proficiency for MEIS. We provide subject matter expertise in the areas of IBS CCMD Information Management Element (IME) policies/procedures/processes, Integrated Waveform (IW), UHF SATCOM, and the CIB.
As a trusted Verification & Validation (V&V) provider, MEIS utilizes advanced tools such as UCTS, designed by MEIS personnel, and was selected by the Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC) as the primary test suite to perform CIB terminal certifications against the IBS-related MIL-STDs.
Logistics and Sustainment
MEIS has an Intermediate Support Facility (ISF) built to provide depot-level troubleshooting and repair of complex SATCOM assemblies such as the Universal Serial Bus (USB) Embedded National Tactical Receiver (ENTR).
MEIS provides guidance and training to joint-service representatives, national agencies, and global users. The topics covered include intelligence systems, data analysis, filtering techniques, exercise planning and support, and tactics to optimize operations effectiveness to various mission areas. Our outreach engagement includes tactics, education, and material solutions to satisfy user data dissemination requirements.
Mission Tailored Training
MEIS designs course content for personnel serving in operational, investigative, collection, and analytical roles throughout the DoD and the Intelligence Community. Tailored training is paramount to ensuring analysts are kept up to date with intelligence and security standards, procedures, tradecraft, and technology advances in the commercial sector.
The wait was long. But it was nothing compared to the months and months of hard work that had led up to it. It was a hunt that had taken them down every avenue.
But in the end, an attack on coalition forces was thwarted. Not because of an informant or exhaustive analysis, but because of a simple report shared between two separate intelligence groups.
For years, while intelligence teams were working for one goal, they weren’t always working as one team. At Mission Essential, we’re playing a big role in changing that. In this instance, as in so many others around the globe, Mission Essential was the integrator that connected two disparate organizations.
Mission Essential is helping to knock down walls and improve intelligence worldwide by combining the techniques, resources, and methods of a number of different intelligence players. Our analysts are making real progress in finding threats and saving lives all over the world.
