Intelligence Specialist (IS)

Intelligence Specialists are involved in collecting and interpreting intelligence especially secret information about enemies or potential enemies. They analyze photographs and prepare charts, maps, and reports that describe in detail the strategic situation all over the world.

IS Intelligence Specialist (IS)
Military information, particularly classified information about enemies or potential enemies, is called "intelligence." Intelligence specialists analyze intelligence data. They break down information to determine its usefulness in military planning. From this intelligence data, they prepare materials that describe in detail the features of strategic and tactical areas all over the world.

The duties performed by ISs include:
  • analyzing intelligence information;
  • identifying and producing intelligence from raw information; assembling and analyzing multi-source operational intelligence; preparing and presenting intelligence briefings; preparing planning materials for photographic reconnaissance missions; analyzing the results, preparing reports.
  • preparing graphics, overlays and photo/map composites; plotting imagery data using maps and charts;
  • providing input to and receive data from computerized intelligence systems ashore and afloat; maintaining intelligence databases, libraries and files.
Working Environment
Intelligence specialists perform most of their duties in an office or watch environment. They usually work closely with others, doing mostly analytical work, but must have the capability to work without supervision and to support the intelligence mission of the Navy on land, undersea, at sea, and in the air. IS's serve on board ships, aircraft squadrons, and various intelligence production centers located in the United States and overseas.

Question about the Sea/Shore tours....

Is that 36months in total or 36months at one time? Probably a stupid question, but I would like to know. Thank you!!
