While going through transition training to get settled in Afghanistan, 1st SFAB G-2 topographic advisors learned of an unclassified hard drive, which contains an imagery data-set from the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency.
The hard drive class was popular among the ANA G-2 section, and the topographic, targeting, plans, and analysis sections could use what they learned to create products that supported their mission requirements with the latest imagery.
The 103d ESC's G-2
section was not trained in collection management or imagery analysis.
After examining the G-2
for a few moments, I took their friendly advice and removed the iron sights and installed the scopes.
In interviews, two former G-2
members and two former soldiers also said they know G-2
is running operations inside the United States.
But he discussed at length how the agency advises and helps run the G-2
. He praised the C.I.A.
During these events, the G-2
forged a strong relationship with the Foundry and mission training complex leaders and gained an expanded understanding of how simulations work.
is working to more fully integrate NATO allies and partners
We actively pursued sending our G-2
leaders to the course, and with the graduation of our first qualified Master Gunner--in conjunction with the Foundry manager--we developed a rigorous DCGS-A course at Fort Bliss that went beyond traditional "buttonology." Instead, it focused on doctrinally sound employment of the weapons system in a similar manner to that of a weapons squad leader with their machineguns--the 1st Armored Division Digital Intelligence Systems Iron Gunner program.
Again, critical to the success of this event was team building with the corps G-2
and the 146th Military Intelligence Battalion Commander (ROK VI Corps' Military Intelligence Battalion).
The establishment of a strong foundation for future execution of Perspicuous Provider occurred in 2016 under the leadership and mentoring of the Army Sustainment Command (ASC) G-2
. The ASC G-2
's vast experience as an intelligence professional in the sustainment enterprise provided the needed insight and guidance to further focus Perspicuous Provider on sustainment-centric intelligence supporting the commander's understanding and decision making.
Throughout the war, these tactical intelligence sections pushed intelligence up through higher headquarters to Nolan's G-2
section, which also pushed intelligence down to give lower echelons a broad picture of the enemy's situation.
