United States of America, in order to provide for the effective conduct of United States

He was commissioned in 1963 as a distinguished military graduate from the University of Maryland. He commanded a signals intelligence detachment in Thailand (where he flew 73 combat support missions in EC-47s), a signals intelligence SIGINT wing at Fort George G. Meade, Maryland, and the Air Force Technical Applications Center, Patrick Air Force Base, Florida.

The ONCIX develops, coordinates, and produces:

Annual foreign intelligence threat assessments and other analytic CI products.

An annual national CI strategy for the US Government.

Priorities for CI collection, investigations, and operations.

CI program budgets and evaluations that reflect strategic priorities.

In-depth espionage damage assessments.

What is Counterintelligence?

Counterintelligence is the business of identifying and dealing with foreign intelligence threats to the United States. Its core concern is the intelligence services of foreign states and similar organizations ofnon-state actors, such as transnational terrorist groups. Counterintelligence has both a defensive mission—protecting the nation's secrets and assets against foreign intelligence penetration—and an offensive mission—finding out what foreign intelligence organizations are planning to better defeat their aims.

As defined in Executive Order 12333, Counterintelligence is information gathered and activities conducted to identify, deceive, exploit, disrupt, or protect against espionage, other intelligence activities, sabotage, or assassinations conducted for or on behalf of foreign powers, organizations, or persons, or their agents, or international terrorist organizations or activities.
