  • Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance Training Flight

The MCISR-E is a warfighting enterprise designed to rapidly fill intelligence capability gaps and address emergent operational intelligence needs requiring near-term technical solutions. Through the integration of all Service ISR elements into a single capability or system networked across all echelons and functional areas – including the operating forces, supporting establishment, systems and personnel – MCISR-E achieves superior decision-making and enhances the Corps’ lethality.

The overall intelligence innovation objectives are to:

  • drive innovation of governance, technology, and processes, to address unique intelligence needs;
  • close capability gaps;
  • collaborate and leverage across traditional boundaries.

A continually evolving ISR enterprise ensures that intelligence effectiveness is at its highest and can deliver forward with “excellence in expeditionary intelligence” that is timely, accurate, and relevant to the warfighter.

    The vision of the Concepts and Programs project is to provide political and military leaders with timely, accurate, and relevant information.
