Bagram Airfield, Parwan, AFG

I conduct non-lethal targeting of ANSF personnel to identify potential insider threats that may pose Green-on-Blue vulnerabilities. I perform traditional all-source and biometric-enabled intelligence analysis to develop and refine targeting. I also conduct supplemental counterintelligence interviews, PCASS exams, and conduct biometric enrollments using the SEEK II as needed. I routinely liaise with other members of the intelligence community, maneuver units, and special staff members to develop leads and coordinate concepts for future missions.

I analyzed and evaluated HUMINT draft reports, atmospherics, and M3 reportin to help identify threats and IW. I produced more than 200 target intelligence packets and person-of-interest dossiers, which, were primarily focused on IED facilitators. I produced robust SDR for both Tac-HUMINT and FDS collectors and provided cyclical support to their collection operations. I developed NAI/TAI through HUMINT to assist ISR collection management. I produced intelligence information, and answered requests for intelligence information through written, oral, and graphic presentations. I participated in both the commander’s Threat Working Group and Targeting Working Group by presenting assessments and briefs.
