The TCM BF also worked with other members of the biometric, forensic, and DOMEX community to develop related studies, lexicons, concepts and requirements documentation on WTI and SE subjects.
Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) to address the biometric, forensic, and DOMEX warfighting problems and known capability gaps.
The RSE JCTD identifies, integrates, and assesses technologies to rapidly recognize, collect, preserve, exploit, analyze, store, and share forensics, biometrics and DOMEX materials and information using inexpensive, portable, easy-to-use, technologies that provide timely and accurate information.
It will also establish or supplement and enhance existing biometric, forensic, and DOMEX architectures, which significantly increases the information flow between Service members, forensics laboratories, intelligence and law enforcement communities, interagency partners, and coalition partners.
When the JCIDS work began in 2008 and the RSE JCTD effort began in 2010, both shared a common objective of establishing enduring, programmed aseline funded capabilities in the areas of biometrics, forensics, DOMEX and TECHINT.
As the military struggled with DOMEX activities between 2001 and 2003, the first tangible effort to institutionalize DOMEX at the National and strategic level came with the creation of Defense Intelligence Agency's (DIA) National Media Exploitation Center (NMEC) in 2003.
The swift expansion of DOMEX enterprise created many different efforts across the IC and DOD which required significant funding from congress.
DOMEX had become an integral source of valuable intelligence information supporting both tactical operations in OEF/OIF and Iraq and strategic analysis in national intelligence agencies, (14) but there was a perception of slight duplication of effort and redundancy in terms of reporting intelligence.
The IC allowed the DOMEX expertise to atrophy after each major conflict which caused a routine "reinvention of the wheel" phenomenon.
IC leadership needs to make tough decisions in the near term in order to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of DOMEX activities.
The Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI), as the head of the IC, oversees and directs the implementation of the National Intelligence Program and, by extension, provides oversight to DOMEX intelligence activities.
One item within ICD 302 represents the center of gravity for the publication-NMEC became the DNI center for the national DOMEX enterprise and became chartered to:
