The Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), Lt. Gen. Vincent R. Stewart, USMC, today announced that Air Vice Marshal Sean Corbett, Royal Air Force, United Kingdom, has been selected as the agency's first deputy director for Commonwealth Integration (DDCI).

The DDCI is a newly-established rotational flag officer position for "Five Eyes" (FVEY) allies at DIA.  The DDCI will act as the DIA Director's senior advisor on all FVEY defense and intelligence issues.  FVEY is an intelligence alliance between the U.S., Canada, United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand.

The U.S. has increased integration with its FVEY partners during the past decade to better exchange intelligence, assessments, and burden share to enhance collaboration on challenging intelligence issues.

Air Vice Marshall Corbett is the Royal Air Force's senior professional intelligence officer and has commanded joint and single service intelligence organizations at every level, including a tour as the United Kingdom's Chief of Intelligence in Afghanistan. His most recent posting was as the Assistant Chief of Staff (Intelligence), Permanent Joint Headquarters, United Kingdom.

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.
