Mission & Vision
The mission of NIOC Colorado has been established by the Commander, U.S. TENTH Fleet, as follows: "Provide ready, trained and motivated Information Warfare Officers, Cryptologic Enlisted Personnel, and expertise to support Signals Intelligence, Electronic Warfare, Space, Information, and cyber Operations for Aerospace Data Facility Colorado (ADF-C), National Security Agency Colorado (NSAC), and Commander Task Force (CTF) 1080 in support of Fleet, combat forces, and national intelligence operations and requirements worldwide." I have taken the liberty of highlighting the areas that will make up the vast majority of our focus - conduct SIGINT, Electronic Warfare, and Space Operations in support of Fleet and combat forces worldwide.
We are an innovative team, committed to providing timely and accurate SIGINT, Electronic Warfare, and Space-based operations support to the fleet and combat forces worldwide. While no three words can truly capture the complexity of our operations, I offer the following - Discover, Analyze, Engage.
In the spirit of Station HYPO and Captain Joseph Rochefort, this represents our ability to search for, find, and exploit enemy intelligence technologies no matter where they reside in the electro-magnetic spectrum. This requires tenacity, perseverance, and patience. Our focus here is to find -- we will find the enemy and pass actionable data to forward deployed forces.
For information to be considered intelligence it must first be analyzed. Analysis consists of both detailed examination and thoughtful interpretation. Each one of you brings unique tradecraft, abilities, and experiences tot eh team; those intellectual skills are critical to this effort and are thus the commands' greatest asset.
For us to be tactically effective and relevant, our intelligence products must be a result of concise, efficient, and collaborative engagement efforts with the Fleet and combat forces, to include communication, dissemination, and threat warning.
Our guiding principles are well-established as the Navy's core values - Honor, Courage, and Commitment. We will continue to instill our core values in every NIOC Colorado Sailor by fostering teamwork and open communications, by valuing integrity and honesty, and by making full-use of the resources at hand.
