Imagery Intelligence (IMINT) Fundamentals
During this one week module, students will be introduced to the fundamentals of imagery intelligence including the anomalies associated with specific sensor types and how they should be analysed effectively. Students will specifically focus on analysis and exploitation methods for the main imagery types including Electro-Optical (EO), Infra-Red (IR) and Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) before understanding how imagery can be stored, retrieved, exploited and fused together.
By the end of the course, students will have a good understanding of airborne sensors and be able to create output in the form of analysis and imagery based products. This will enable the students to potentially go on to tackle more complex IMINT courses that are specific to imagery or mission types.
Students attending the IMINT analysis course should arrive with at least some understanding of the general ISR domain. The ISR Fundamentals course or an equivalent standard is sufficient in order for students to understand the context of IMINT.
The following course objectives have been formulated in order to develop the course programme and provide a suitable output standard for the students:
- The principles of Imagery Intelligence
- Use of Electro-Optical (EO) sensors
- Considerations when using Intra-Red (IR) Sensors
- Introduction to Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR)
- How to use Imagery Exploitation Software
- Effective, mission specific exploitation and analysis
- Tools & Techniques for storage, retrieval and IMINT fusion
This course is open to individuals looking to expand their understanding of the entire intelligence domain and grasp the power of fused analysis. Students should have the ability to participate fully in debate and give assessments on complex situations.
