The DOD intelligence enterprise must look over the horizon to an ABI analytic environment where such ISR sources as streaming FMV, MTI, OPIR, SIGINT, MASINT, SAR, spectral, and thermal imagery are integrated at the post-processed and georeferenced entry point and compared with archived collected data in an automated fashion.

The disciplines that play the most critical role in combating WMD, as identified in the commission report, are human intelligence (HUMINT), measurement and signature intelligence (MASINT), signals intelligence (SIGINT), and imagery intelligence (IMINT).
ZelTech has been a pioneer in the development, maturation and support of, time sensitive operations, predictive intelligence, MASINT, HUMINT, Information Assurance and the integration of existing military capabilities into the area of Homeland Defense.
The second phase is collection of information, including open-source collection; clandestine collection; human intelligence (Humint); signals intelligence (Sigint); imagery intelligence (Imint); and measurement and signature intelligence (Masint).
Lastly, measurement and signature intelligence (MASINT) comprises intelligence obtained by analyzing the distinctive features of a source, emitter, or sender utilizing acoustic, seismic, particle, multispectral, or other data associated with it.
With automation and machine-to-machine interaction, ABI can bridge the gaps between the virtual stovepipes our human intelligence (HUMINT), signals intelligence (SIGINT), geospatial intelligence (GEOINT), measurement and signatures intelligence (MASINT), and even open-source intelligence (OSINT) have become.
Reams of documentation analyze the effects the complexities of a megacity will have on intelligence operations in all of the disciplines: All-Source Intelligence, Human Intelligence (HUMINT), Signals Intelligence (SIGINT), Geospatial Intelligence (GEOINT), Measurement and Signature Intelligence (MASINT), Technical Intelligence (TECHINT), Open Source Intelligence (OSINT), and Counterintelligence (CI).
In early 2014, the Intelligence Committee was created to provide a forum of discussion and industrial base action associated with achieving persistent and actionable intelligence across the spectrums of interest that encompass MASINT programs and delivery systems, SIGINT and imagery (video) collection and dissemination, and Intel Fusion Centers operated in concert with National Authority direction, as well as statutory and human domain constraints.

MASINT Measurements and signature intelligence is "technically derived intelligence that detects, locates, tracks, identifies, and describes the unique characteristics of fixed and moving targets" (Lefebvre, 2004, p.259) MEDINT Medical intelligence results "from the collection, evaluation, analysis, and interpretation of foreign medical, bio-scientific, and environmental information which is of interest to strategic planning and to military medical planning and operations for the conservation of the fighting force and formation of assessments of foreign medical capabilities in both military and civilian sectors" (Kaufman, 2001, p.1).
