The Intelligence Analyses Division (IAD) delivers objective solutions to the toughest intelligence and security problems facing the Department of Defense and the Intelligence Community. IAD’s work ranges from cross-cutting assessments of the intelligence and security ecosystem, to comprehensive intelligence analyses, to deep technical reviews of classified programs and systems. Our team of intelligence and security researchers have excelled as leaders, strategists, evaluators, practitioners, and academics within government and industry, and are adept at leveraging the vast breadth and depth of technical expertise across IDA.

Additionally, we apply extraordinary knowledge focused on three geostrategic regions: China, Russia, and Africa. IAD’s regional and functional experts help decisionmakers objectively understand strategic options and implications in ways that can only be offered by those who possess a broad appreciation for the global and technological forces at play.

Housed in a state-of-the-art sensitive compartmented information facility, our researchers have access to information technology systems and data needed to conduct the sensitive work of IAD sponsors.
