DS&T oces create and apply innovative technology to meet intel-ligence needs. The Directorate’s work ranges rom exploratory research to the design,development, and operation o specialized intelligence systems, both large and small.The Directorate is actively engaged in every collection discipline: imagery intelligence(IMINT), signals intelligence (SIGINT), human sources intelligence (HUMINT), andmeasurement and signature intelligence (MASINT).
