Our Mission

Provide intelligence on foreign militaries to prevent
and decisively win wars.

DIA provides intelligence on foreign militaries and their operating environments so the United States and its allies can prevent and decisively win wars. We serve everyone from the president to the soldier in combat through a combination of expert analysis, intelligence gathering, and cutting-edge science and technology. The DIA Museum provides a unique, declassified look at DIA's roles that include exposing the truth, supporting operations, enabling diplomacy and supporting every effort to safely return our troops.
