DEFENSE AND INTELLIGENCE ABBREVIATIONS 
AND ACRONYMS 


Foreword 


This comprehensive list of intelligence abbreviations and acronyms includes 
those used presently, as well as those in use for approximately the last ten years. 
Sources for this list include the last DIA Lexicon published in 1991, numerous 
glossaries from Unified Command and Combat Support Agency documents, and 
contributions, from the faculty of the Joint Military Intelligence College. The 
expansion of any item may vary somewhat from one organization to another, 
but this list will hopefully contribute to greater standardization. 

This editor is indebted to kSgt Hannah Reddy (USA) and SSgt Angela Wimbush 
(USAF) of the College, who spent many hours in collating this list. Debbie 
Linesberry of the U.S. Special Operations Command collaborated by adding 
that command’s most frequently used acronyms. 2LT Vincent Littrell (USAF) 
and SFC Mark McCurry (USA) helped ensure that the list contains as few errors 
as possible, and the editor extends his thanks for that dedicated assistance. 

All users are invited to submit additions and corrections. To promote the usefulness 
of the list, older or superseded acronyms will be discarded only if their retention 
would create confusion. This list is also published under the JMIC home page on 
Intelink, where it will be updated regularly. Readers are urged to send new acronyms 
or abbreviations by mail to: Defense Intelligence Agency, Joint Military Intelligence 
College, MC Attn: Dr. R. Swenson, Bolling AFB, Washington, DC 20340-5100: 
by Ingternet to AFswerg@dia.osis.gov, or by Fax to (202) 231-2171.
