National Military Intelligence Center (NMIC)

The National Military Intelligence Center (NMIC) of the Ministry of Defense (MoD) fuses intelligence from all levels. The NMIC mission is to support the national leadership as well as the tactical units with high quality intelligence products. The NMIC intelligence analysts are connected with other intelligence resources through the National Information Management System (NIMS). The intel fusion cneter has a counter-insurgency and military operations support focus. It supports both conventional and SOF forces with analytical, force protection, targeting support, counter-IED, and "attack the network" capabilities.

Funding for the NMIC is provided by the United States under the Afghan Security Forces Fund (ASFF) as part of the Overseas Contingency Operations (OCO) budget. The NMIC is rumored to cost almost $80 million dollars in total.

The National Military Intelligence Center is located at Sia Sang. "The NMIC is comprised of three pillars: a Fusion Center with enablers, the Afghanistan Security Operations Center, and a communications element. The NMIC enables ANA intelligence to plan and conduct security operations by providing timely, relevant, and actionable intelligence to support the ANA General Staff and its subordinated commands, including the ANASOC." 1.
