General Information

DoD Directive 5250.01, "Management of Intelligence Mission Data (IMD) in DoD Acquisition", establishes a USD(I)-led governance structure to oversee IMD development, production, and sharing of IMD functional areas including, but not limited to, signatures, electronic warfare integrated reprogramming (EWIR), order of battle (OOB), system characteristics and performance (C&P), and geospatial intelligence (GEOINT).
