Intelligence Analysis

At the National Security Agency, intelligence analysis is the process of generating intelligence from data and information derived from foreign signals. Intelligence analysts are the Agency’s professionals whose research, analysis, and presentation of findings provide the most complete possible signals intelligence (SIGINT) picture.  SIGINT is used by U.S. policy makers, military commanders, and other Intelligence Community organizations to assist in Executive Branch decisions and actions.
