Prompt: There are two types of intelligence collection: domestic and foreign. There are six sources, or disciplines, of intelligence: measurement and signatures
intelligence (MASINT), imagery intelligence (IMINT), geospatial intelligence (GEOINT), signalsintelligence (SIGINT), human intelligence (HUMINT), and opensource intelligence (OSINT).Note that one of the textbooks, The FiveDisciplines of Intelligence Collection, clearly addresses only five of these sources/disciplines
of intelligence. Since the publication of this textbook, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) officially recognized IMINT and GEOINT as two
separate disciplines. Thus, you may need to consult additional resources, such as the ODNI FAQ, to complete this assignment. In this short paper, you will
distinguish each of these six sources/disciplines of intelligence using examples of intelligence collection in both domestic and foreign environments.
Specifically, the following critical elementsmust be addressed:
I. Sources/Disciplines:Describe each of the six intelligence sources/disciplines, including theirfull names and acronyms.
II. Environments: Explain how each source/discipline would be used in domestic versus foreign environments.
III. Examples: Suggest the types of information that might be collected in both domestic and foreign environments for each source/discipline of intelligence.
Guidelines for Submission: Your paper should be 2 to 3 pages and submitted as a Microsoft Word document with headings, double spacing, 12-point Times New
Roman font, and one-inch margins. All sources used should be cited in APA format.
