Navy Expeditionary Intelligence Command (NEIC), Navy Expeditionary Combat Command (NECC)
Established Oct. 4, 2007 Navy Expeditionary Intelligence Command (NEIC), within Navy Expeditionary Combat Command, provides tactical force protection/indications and warning intelligence collection, enabling Navy commanders to conduct missions across the full spectrum of expeditionary operations. With multi-intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) collection capabilities operating at the tactical level, NEIC has unique access to areas and environments - from blue to green water, the coastal littoral, and far inland - that are constrained by more traditional ISR assets. NEIC capabilities give expeditionary, maritime, joint and combined forces timely, relevant and actionable intelligence to deny the enemy sanctuary, freedom of movement, and use of waterborne lines of communication while enabling friendly forces to find, fix, and destroy the enemy within the operational environment.
