Defense Intelligence Agency Breaks Ground for 13,000 Square Foot Facility Expansion
(Ft. Detrick, MD - September 3, 2010)
Leaders from the Defense Intelligence Agency broke ground for an addition to the National Center for Medical Intelligence (NCMI) at a ceremony in Ft. Detrick, Md. The ceremony marks the beginning of construction on a 13,000 square-foot addition to the 31,500 square-foot facility.
Slated for completion in 12 months, the project will also include 67 work spaces, two conference rooms, one classroom, and 44 new parking spaces. Following construction, the existing building will undergo a major renovation, including upgrades to the heating, cooling, electrical and plumbing systems.
“This expansion reflects our continuing commitment to provide our nation with the best medical intelligence possible,” said Lt. Gen. Ronald Burgess, U.S. Army, director of the Defense Intelligence Agency. “Providing medical intelligence that enables the success of our servicemen and women in harm’s way is a top priority for our agency.”
Established by the Secretary of Defense as the premier producer and coordinator of all-source medical intelligence, NCMI produces medical intelligence for global force protection and homeland health protection to safeguard U.S. interests worldwide.
DIA is the nation’s premier all-source military intelligence organization.
It provides the nation’s most authoritative assessments of foreign military intentions and capabilities. The agency’s four core competencies -- human intelligence, all-source analysis, counterintelligence and technical intelligence -- enable military operations while also informing policy-makers at the defense and national levels.
DIA’s mission is unique and no other agency matches its military expertise across such a broad range of intelligence disciplines.
