In the spirit of great cooperation between ARISC commanders and battalion commanders, training and operational sets of DCGS-A are now consolidated and accounted for at all nine ARISC sites.
The command is also in the middle of a pilot program in conjunction with the 116th MI Brigade focused on establishing the brigade's converged architecture in the MIRC's Southeastern ARISC. There is much confidence that this effort will succeed, thereby paving the way for MIRC units, with the proper training and certification, to conduct PED from home station.
Recognizing the future requirements, the MIRC and the Southeastern ARISC are leading the development of a PED Program of Instruction (POI) that is feasible within the environment of the AR MI forces (fits the typical training days of an AR MI Soldier and still train and qualify those Soldiers on PED).
This program provides technical intelligence training by an experienced ARISC cadre of full-time trainers to AR, ARNG, and AC MI Soldiers.
Five years later (1996), with a new emphasis on mission-related training and real-world MI and operational intelligence support (OIS), the RTS-I were redesignated as Army Reserve Intelligence Support Centers (ARISCs).
Until 2012, the Army provided little of the MI connectivity and associated hardware at ARISCs, though the Army did reap some secondary training and support benefits.

In the past nine months, I visited a number of MI units including the Army Reserve Intelligence Support Center (ARISC
) and 221st MI Battalion (Tactical Exploitation [TE]) (a U.S.

The USARC G2 had five direct reporting Army Reserve Intelligence Support Centers (ARISCs
), previously called Reserve Training Sites-Intelligence and one MI Augmentation Detachment (MIAD), also known as the MI Special Training Element Program (MISTE).
In addition, there is a huge ability to leverage reach support through the MIRC's five Army Reserve Intelligence Support Centers (ARISCs) located throughout the United States."
During the Global War on Terror, some units deployed while others supported from ARISCs located throughout the United States.
