NSA Technical Signals Intelligence (TechSIGINT) provides understanding of foreign weapons, air, and space systems. This knowledge is an important part of NSA's role as a Combat Support Agency, providing support to development of U.S. and Allied weapons, air, and space systems and military operations across the globe - in all domains related-to air, land, sea, space, and cyberspace. TechSIGINT also provides valuable insights to U.S. policy makers, decision- makers, and organizational leaders that guide the United States' role as a world leader in military weapons and space systems and technologies.
TechSIGINT accomplishes this through:
- Identifying the foreign weapons, air, and space system
- Determining how the foreign weapons, air, and space system being employed or used
- Defining the status of the foreign weapons, air, or space system
